  • Hello
    Just a quick question. I have Ultimate Member installed on a site and it is working fine.
    When a new member signs up they are being sent an activation email which work fine, my question is how long does the link in an activation email remain valid for before it expires, or does it not expire.

    Hi @colinhrt,

    The email activation link remains valid and does not expire until the member clicks on the link.

    Thanks for that.

    I am thinking of putting a page on my site where a user who has lost the activation email can request it again. The site ( ) is a front end for a subscription service I have set up which sends some information to their email account, and I have another plugin I developed to integrate the two. So now knowing that the activation link does not expire until clicked on I can simply save it when it is generated in my systems database and resend an email with it if requested.

    This does not handle customers who entered the wrong email address, thinking of some sort of expiry period for them, if they have not activated their account after say 3 weeks the system will automatically purge them and cancel and refund any subscription they may have set up as well. As it is a monthly subscription this would stop it before a rebill if they don’t stop it earlier.

    I am curious. Why do you believe people would want to pay you for downloading a report they can get free elsewhere? Am I missing something?

    Hi borisev

    I think you may have missed something. My report can be downloaded for free as well.

    People only need to subscribe if they want a version that contains their affiliate links that they can give away for free.

    When someone subscribes they receive a permanent unique link to download their report and can download the latest one each day through that link and or promote that link to give it away easily.

    This custom report containing their affiliate links is I believe the unique point.(
