Description

Hi,
After registering you go to the Avatar upload photo part. Crop the image you want as an Avatar, then you submit. It then goes back to the Avatar screen with your new Avatar picture. Should it not head over to a My Profile section with an automatic login, seeing the person already registered? Another option is to have a confirmation link sent out to the email and once they click it from their email it should automatically sign them in? Yes?

This is correct and intented behavior. It's to help combat spam signups, and gives someone double opt-in protection. There are plugins and code snippets available that allow automatic account activation, but this removes an extra layer of spam deterrence.

Having the link automatically log in someone is a security risk, since anyone who happened upon that email, could then hijack a user's account.

All that being said, there are plenty of filters available that would allow you to do this in a plugin, if you so desire.

Just to add to this, avatar uploading on the registration screen has been removed for BP 1.3.
