Maybe pass a var through to the onpage form via $_GET which populates a hidden input..

That's an interesting idea. I kinda like it!

Instead of the hidden input, I would just populate the existing text field that shows up at example.com/activate/.

Putting this back in the "Awaiting Review" milestone.

    initial v3  
    11Just had to fix this on a shared hosting account @ https://www.a2hosting.com, they run a spam filter called https://www.barracuda.com/products/spamfirewall
    22what this does it follow external links in any outgoing emails sent from the server in question. So when buddypress sends out it's activation link like so : http://example.com/activate?key=7678978978978789 it gets clicked on by the spam filter activating the account and rendering the activation link useless...
    3 I think this is the ongoing issue with invalid activation links that some users are experiencing. I suggest we move the activate link to a actual button on page that needs to be physically clicked?

    46My temp fix was to add a deny from all into the .htaccess denying the server access to it's self.
