Disables the activation email and automatically activates new users in BuddyPress under a standard WP install and WPMU (multisite). Also, automatically logs in the new user since the account is already active.
Possible Future Features:
-Option to turn off automatic login
-Option to not disable email
-Redirect options after account creation
-Doesn’t do the automatic login if you allow blog creation during the user creation in WPMU (multisite)
- Upload the ‘bp-disable-activation’ folder to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Sit back, relax and enjoy the plugin
- Won’t this allow more spammers to get in?
Of course it could. So, you should consider using other plugins and methods for preventing spammers from signing up on your site. However, many people have seen spammers get through just fine even with email activation enabled. Plus, some sites are designed so that email activation doesn’t matter. Thus the plugin.
- What if I don’t want my users to automatically login?
Why don’t you? Users will love that feature. I’ll look at adding an option to turn this on/off. Until then you can comment out those lines if you don’t want it.
