not activated users – how to create new activation key
I have a small problem with not acitvaed accounts.
I have less users listed here:
than in the wp_users table with status 2. I checked wp_usermeta and those missing users have activation_key defined for each of them.
So they are in the database, they have activation key defined, but they are not in the back office panel.
I suspect the reason is that those records are very old. Is there a mechanism to hide old sign-ups without activation?
thanks in advance
I’ve just realised, that those users were moved from our previous cms and they have activation key from that system.
I made a test and it occurs that during activation it’s not the value of activation_key from wp_usermeta taken to compare. For a new user registered I changed this value in the database, but it could still be activated using the activation link from the email.
So my question changes:
what is the algorithm to create a proper activation key?
