New Users Invalid Activation Code Error

  • bntbrl


    Ive read through a dozen or so threads about this and tried many things to no avail. The users register, get their email, click the activate link in the email and go to the website. However the website says the activation code is invalid. The user can log in but no one thinks it worked because of the red letter error on the activate page. They have an account and are active but the error code is the deal killer.

    I set up smtp email plugin and that works. The users get their emails fine but the activation page says the code is invalid.

    I tried removing all the plugins and uninstalling BuddyPress and reinstalling from a zip file too instead of the WP installer. Cleared cache on my browser. I don’t know what else to try. I have seen multiple similar problems and some say they’ve been resolved but I havne’t been able to resolve mine.

    I have:
    Wordpress 4.7
    BuddyPress Version 2.7.3
    bbPres Version 2.5.12
    SimpleHelix hosting
    Apache Version 2.4.16

    I set up another new domain. New fresh install never installed latest WordPress and then installed Buddypress fresh install with no other plugins and got the same error. This one might beat me.



    Hi @bntbrl,

    Did you get get this resolved? I’m stuck in a similar situation. Users get the activation email, but it directs them to “invalid activation key”… they cannot log in.

    The key is not in my database either.

    So stuck, and no way to contact @buddypress
