#3678 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Activation fails

Reported by: aniah's profile aniah Owned by:

Severity: major Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


WordPress 3.2.1, BuddyPress 1.5 on Lighttpd

I tried registering a new user and got the activation email. However, upon clicking the link, I am directed to

Activate your Account

Please provide a valid activation key.

I try pasting the key into the field but activation still doesn't work. Even worse, there does not appear to be any way for an admin to force-activate an account.

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

It probably means that the account is already activated. Use the plugin to view and activate unactivated accounts.

Please post support requests at If this turns out being a BP bug, please reopen the ticket with steps to reproduce.

No, the accounts were definitely not already activated. I have to use that plugin to manually activate all new accounts.

Is there any way I can debug why the activate page isn't working?
