#1156 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Activation emails are broken from wp-admin

Fresh install of Buddy Press on the latest version of WPMU. Emails work when creating a new user from /wp-admin/user-new.php with BuddyPress disabled. When BP is enabled the email doesn't include the activation link but instead includes a %s (which should be the activation link.

The first %s substitution, the blog name, works fine, just the activation link is broken.

Oddly enough registrations following this link: /wp-admin/wpmu-users.php work just fine. They skip the registration link and email the user a password directly however. I'd prefer to be using the version that sends an activation link. Either way one of these functions should be disabled or they really should operate the same way. I'm guessing that the difference is because one is a blog user and the other is site wide?

Glad to help if I can, email me.
