#5991 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Activation links don't use BP_ACTIVATION_SLUG

Reported by: slaffik's profile slaFFik Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Registration Keywords:


When this constant is defined, the URL (that is sent to users) is changed, that is good.
But this define only works if there is no connection on BuddyPress -> Pages between Activate page and any WordPress page.
The real problem is further. So I have disconnected BuddyPress Activate page, defined BP_ACTIVATION_SLUG, user got the email with the new link (lets say,, clicked the link - and opened 404 page.

Or did I miss something?

Filtering bp_get_activate_slug() (not just defining the constant) has the same behaviour.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Summary changed from BP_ACTIVATION_SLUG is useless to Activation links don't use BP_ACTIVATION_SLUG

For legacy reasons, if this slug is set, it should override whatever it set in the Page Mapping. I think this is likely a bug in the URL parsing/routing code.
