how to skip ‘activate’ after clicking activation link from email

    — CASE: —
    as the title says…
    here’s basically what a new user have to do after registration until accessing their profile page:
    1. click activation link from email
    2. directed to /activate/blabla_somesortofcode_blabla
    3. click ‘activate’
    4. login per usual + some navigation until…
    5. arrived at profile page at /active/username

    — PROBLEM: —
    I’m hoping to skip step 3 and 4.
    So by doing some backstage abracadabra during step 2, people could magically arrive at their profile page (step 5).

    Any idea how to do it?

    — ADDITIONAL NOTES: —
    I’m currently using this ‘Bp Auto Login On Activation’ plugin which basically automate step 4. But I’m still hoping I could skip step 3 too, I mean… it’s basically just clicking a button, right?

    Thank you.

    I’d like to be able to do the same thing. I don’t want to skip the activation email, but when the user clicks the link in the email it should activate their account and log them in rather than forcing them to click “Activate”, then click “Log In”, then log in.

    You can probably add something like this. Note, I have not tested it, so this will send a curl request to the same activation page with the activation parameter, in turn the user is activated.

    add_action('bp_before_activation_page',function(){
       if ( !bp_account_was_activated() ){
          
          $pages=get_option('bp-pages');
          if(empty($pages['activate'])){return;}
          wp_remote_post(get_permalink($pages['activate']),array(
             'method'      => 'POST',
             'timeout'     => 45,
             'body'        => array(
                 'key' => bp_get_current_activation_key(),
          ));
          //get the response from above and force user login into the site.
          // get user_id from the response wp_remote_retrieve_body
          // wp_clear_auth_cookie();
          //wp_set_current_user( $user_id ); log the user into wordpress
       }
    });

    Hey,

    you can automate Step 3 like this:

    function my_custom_buddypress_activation_autoactivate(){
    	if($key = bp_get_current_activation_key()){
    		if($user_id = bp_core_activate_signup($key)){
    			if(!is_wp_error( $user_id )){
    				$bp = buddypress();
    				$bp->activation_complete = true;
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }
    add_action('bp_before_activation_page','my_custom_buddypress_activation_autoactivate');

    I would not recommend auto-login on activation page because it could create a security risk.

    Happy Coding!
