    Chris ,

    I have updated to 1.2.1 version . The error messages issues were resolved.

    But when I sent an Invitiation link to a user 'X' . And if he tried to singup using the link ....he is getting a message like ....

    Sorry, you must be invited to join this community.

    I don't understand why the error message appears when he himself trying to signup

    Could you please let me know how to resolve this issue?

    Thank you !

    Is he clicking the link in the invitation email, does the right email address appear in the URL for the signup page? If so then the invitation may have expired (but I thought a different message is shown if that's the case).

    Try it to another address and see if the same thing happens.

    Chris Taylor,

    Is he clicking the link in the invitation email, does the right email address appear in the URL for the signup page?

    Yes ! That's the right email

    If so then the invitation may have expired

    I have checked it by my-self with different email Ids as a new user in timely bound manner . But could not get it worked

    Checked on WordPress versions :3.1.3 and 3.1.4
    Multisite mode ? Yes

    Thanks !

    Can you send me an invitation (my username here @gmail.com) and I'll try to see why it's not working. If you can also give me access to your dashboard that will help a lot.

    Just a stab in the dark, but I notice that the default invite URL is:

    /wp-login.php?action=register&email=

    It appears to require &email= at the end. If I customize my URL without the email argument, does it break the invitation link?

    Yes, it will break it. You can make the URL whatever you want, but the 'email=' parameter must be there. This is because the emails that get sent add the users email address to the end of the link so the system knows who they are.

    So, we have to add the "&email=" to the end of the URL in the "signup page" box in the settings? That's a change. It used to add "&email=[their email address" to make the signuplink, now it just tacks on the email address? This seems counterintuitive. I wish there had been some notification of that needing to be changed. What update caused this change? How long have my users been able to send out broken invites?

    I am facing the same problem. I keep sending out the invites but the invitation link does not work and the users keep getting the error "Sorry, you must be invited to join this community."

    Any luck fixing this? I am using buddypress 1.5.2 and WordPress 3.3

    If anyone is still having problems with this please send an invitation to me (my username here @gmail.com) and I'll investigate.

    Same thing with mine.

    Buddypress 1.5.3.1
    WordPress 3.3.1

    I've sent you an invite.

    Cheers!

    Ok, so I've figured it out...

    For Buddypress, you have to manually configure the signup link.

    Go to:
    Settings > Invites
    Click "Settings" and select the "Use custom settings" option.
    The "Signup page" field should read something like:
    http://example.com/wp-login.php?action=register&email=

    For Buddypress users, you must change the "Signup page" field to:
    http://example.com/register?email=

    That seems to solve the problem!

    I'm not quite sure how the plugin identifies if it is a normal WP instalation or if it is a Buddypress one (haven't had the time to search thru the code).

    Anyway, hope this helps!

    Yes, this looks like it would work. I'll try to add something to the plugin to make that configuration change easier (or even automatic).
