My new registrants are suddenly receiving a request to “provide a valid activation key” after clicking the activation link in the email they receive after registering.
I can see that this request is generated by a few lines in activate.php, but I don’t know what’s suddenly triggering the behavior.
In recent weeks I successfully implemented a Let’s Encrypt certificate for the site and its subdomains and am forcing https site-wide. Could this be the culprit? Is there something I need to change in wp-config.php, .htaccess or elsewhere?
You mentioned in a previous post that you manually upgraded to BuddyPress 3.0.
BuddyPress 3.0 changed the activation routine to always ask for the activation key from the activation email and for the user to manually submit the form. The CBOX theme needs to be updated so the activation key is automatically added to the form field to avoid confusion.
To fix this manually until the next maintenance release, apply the following change to the CBOX theme’s activation template:
Thanks as always for the prompt reply, Ray! I will make this change and let you know how it goes!
I edited registration/activate.php and registration is now proceeding smoothly. Thanks again, Ray!
