Support » Plugins » What Hook do I need to use??

  • I am creating a plugin for my WPMS that needs to change user meta data when a new user activates the site from the link sent by WP when the user signs up for a blog.

    function lf_wpmu_activate_user($user_id){ 
        $info = get_userdata($user_id);
        $args = array(
            'test_meta_data' =>'this is a test',
            'show_welcome_panel' => 0

    I can verify that the code is being read by WP with a few lines of code that writes to a file. But my function is not being fired when a user clicks on the link to activate the site.

    Am I hooking to the correct hook? Or should I be connecting to a different hook.. this seems like it should be fairly simple but it is not working.

    Thanks for the help..

  • I am also having this problem, it seems that wpmu_activate_user and wpmu_activate_blog don’t get called from plugins.

    To verify I put did_action( xxxx ) at the end of wp-activate.php and confirmed it only gets called once regardless of whether I have my code or not. Looks like plugins aren’t loaded in wp-activate.php

    Can anyone suggest a solution, I had hoped that add_signup_meta would transfer any additional meta data over to the usermeta table automatically but this isn’t happening either.

    This issue was resolved by activating the plugin Network Wide, as the defined constant WP_INSTALLING at the top of wp-activate.php prevents plugins loading that aren’t site wide.
