User Activation Keys
No email sent for multisite activation. (5 posts)

    Hi,
    I do to agree with the previous Topic.

    Surprise, surprise - another awesome plugin from Dsader :)

    This is exactly my experience with plugins provided by Dsader as well.

    So it must be something I am missing here.
    My issue is this. After correctly placing the plugin (v3.0.4) in the mu-plugins folder, the new sites cannot be immediately created/registered by the user because an email registration is not sent (to the user). The user sees the screen that the site was successfully created when it is not.
    I need to manually approve the user. After that 1) the email is sent 2)the site is created and the user without the need to press on the site activation link can log in.

    From the plugin's description:

    Delete a key to allow the username to (re)signup and bypass the "couple days" it takes WP to free up its hold on a user name.
    You can also manually approve users that for whatever reason have not completed their activation.

    I read "(re)signup, also, for whatever reason".
    Well... They cannot create a new site or complete their activation for the reason that the email does not get sent and we need to (not also but) manually approve them. Hmmmm...

    Is this how this plugin should work or am I missing something?
    If it is could there be an option to automatically approve new users?
    Please enlighten.

    Thank you in advance
    ps: Glad to see you back. :)

    You say "the email does not get sent" - that needs a fix. This plugin isn't causing the initial activation email to not go out.

    The workaround for a broken registration you describe is how the plugin should work. The network page this plugin creates should list recent successful registrations, and recent incomplete registrations.

    The folks at incsub have(had) a plugin "Remove Email Verification" or "No email required". You could check there for help removing the email verification altogether.

    Thank you for the reply.

    This plugin isn't causing the initial activation email to not go out....
    ...The network page this plugin creates should list recent successful registrations, and recent incomplete registrations.

    My issue though is that it prevents the site from accepting the user, thus his/her site NOT been created, thus NO initial activation email created, thus NO email confirmation with the site password been sent.

    The folks at incsub have(had) a plugin "Remove Email Verification" or "No email required". You could check there for help removing the email verification altogether.

    That is a completely different story.
    I do NOT want to remove the email notification. I want to use your excellent plugin together with the rest. I think it provides an extra step of security that canNOT be achieved otherwise.
    This is the reason why I am asking for a way to NOT have to manually accept the new users.
    Is this possible?

    Thanks again

    To clarify, you say that after installing only this plugin - User Activation Keys - that "it prevents the site from accepting the user". I don't know how it could do that. Does registration work normally when you disable only this plugin? Curious.

    I am afraid the answer to your question is yes. It looks like the plugin does NOT automatically approve the users. I am @wordpress331
    I have to manually go and approve the user. After that the system works.

    In any case (since there may be something wrong on my side) I am willing to test is on another multisite (I will have to create a test site) but will take some time. Please let me know.

    In the mean time could you please have a look at it as well?
    Thanks
