[Plugin: Profile Builder] "Invalid activation key!" when signing up new users. (24 posts)

    I just installed Profile Builder and am very optimistic about using it, however upon testing it I am getting the following error when I click the activation link in the email "Invalid activation key!".

    I am testing the free version, and downloaded it through the wordpress admin section.

    Anything I am missing? I am really hoping to use this and likely purchase the pro version if I can get this to work.

    Hi,

    This sounds like a bug really. Will test it out and see if I can replicate it.

    So tested the latest free version 1.1.32 and I can't replicate this.

    I've tested this with "Email Confirmation" Feature both On and Off and got the same result.

    Can you tell me if this happens again with version 1.1.32 or you had an older one?

    Thank you.

    I am also experiencing this using WP 3.4.2 and Profile Builder 1.1.32. Could this be URL Encoding or Server Conifg conflicts? I am using a few plugins: Types, Views, Gravity Forms and Role Scoper - I've disabled anything having to do with User Management and still get the error.

    As an update - the plugin does seem to work without email verifcation.

    Hello,

    can you please try it out with all the other plugins deactivated? Let me know how it turned out.

    Either way, we will issue an update these days, so stay tuned.

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    Thanks for the info so far. I have been using it without the email activation, but really don;t want to do that for the long term. A fix would be excellent. Our site is at consumer.coop.

    Hi - I get the same error with latest version and latest WP.

    checking the code:

    $signup = $wpdb->get_row( $wpdb->prepare("SELECT * FROM ".$wpdb->prefix."signups WHERE activation_key = %s", $key) );

    It seems to be looking for a "wp_prefix_signups" table - which I don't have.

    The signup function appears to require the table too:

    $wpdb->insert( $wpdb->prefix.'signups', array('domain' => '', 'path' => '', 'title' => '', 'user_login' => $user, 'user_email' => $user_email, 'registered' => current_time('mysql', true), 'activation_key' => $key, 'meta' => $meta) );

    please can you confirm this is correct and why it might be missing?

    Thanks

    turning off the:

    "Email Confirmation" Feature Activated:

    option means that people can now register directly.. but, that feature would be useful. thanks

    I have the same problem. Table wp_signups doesn't exist, so every activation key is invalid :(

    I've updated Profile Builder and reactivated it. Table still not exists.

    After registration i've got the same problem — invalid activation key :(

    P.S.: I cant find INSERT of this table in plugin files.

    Have you also deactivated the email confirmation feature? The script runs only on settings-change (which is when it gets activated).

    So please select "no" at email confirmation, save, and then select "yes", save, and try again.

    Let me know, please.

    New users aren't getting any email at all.
    Admin does get an email.

    I've checked the spam and nothing in there. Any ideas?

    Hello,

    does this happen to only a few email domain providers (ex: yahoo), or for all of them?

    Hi,

    Happens for all of them.

    I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling and see what happens.
    Will let you know.

    Hi,

    I have recently started having trouble with the plugin giving the same Invalid Activation Key error mentioned here.

    Could this be related to upgrading to 3.5? This has previously worked for the site I'm working on. I didn't develop it, but have taken over maintaining it. The plugin seems pretty straight forward with minimal options, so I'm not sure what could be going on.

    Thank you.

    Hello Kirk,

    I just tested it out on a 3.5 WP installation and all works fine. Are you sure there isn't any conflict with another plugin? Maybe deactivate them for testing purposes (also, use one of the default themes)

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    Hi Gabriel,

    First, thank you for the reply and checking that.

    The weird thing is that this functionality had been working until recently. I didn't notice exactly when as I hadn't tried the register functionality for a while. I will turn off the other plugins and see what happens.

    Hi Gabriel,

    I deleted and re-installed the latest version and it is working fine. Not sure what happened, but thank you for getting back to me before.

    Cheers,

    Kirk
