Bluehost (and maybe other hosting companies) filters these activation messages. What I was told by the level III tech: This was difficult to track down, but I was able to find that the message was getting caught in a spam filter because of the subject of the message subject="Enclosed+is+your+activation+code". This looks to be a common subject that ...

I am developer of Smart members PRO. There is maximum 2 emails trigger when new member registers with EE. 1) User – Account activation instructions 2) User – Account validation notification 1) User – Account activation instructions: This is an instruction email and will trigger only if you make users to self activate there account via email. You ...

I had to remove the group_id="7" from the freemember registration form tag. With it in there, the registrants never went to "Pending" first, they would be put into the member group with id of 7.

Ok well I solved this in the end by writing a bespoke extension to simply bypass the error message which is usually shown for an invalid activation request. function activation_hijack ( $session_data ) { if (ee()->input->get('ACT')) { $act = ee()->input->get('ACT'); if ($act==8 AND ee()->input->get('id')) { ...

I recommend bypassing BlueHost altogether and getting set up with a 3rd party email service like Mandrill. Install the Escort add-on, enter your API key, and you're done! The nice thing about the 3rd party services is they track incoming and outgoing messages and provide analytics for each one, so you can do really fine-grained troubleshooting instead of ...

This could be down to security on your mail server rejecting a non-existant "from" address. Does the email address set up for EE return emails actually exist? You might also want to try putting the mail through a transactional service such as Mandrill at least to debug what's going on. That will tell you whether or not the mail is being sent and just not ...

Have you set group_id whitelist parameter and group_id form input? https://github.com/expressodev/freemember/blob/master/docs/register_tag.md

Yes, you can resent the activation link from Member Administration area of that member. While going to that you can see "Resend Activation Email" link at left bottom. Also, when they try to login, it tells them that they need to activate there account. I would like to have a link in there so they can re-send the activation email to themselves. Could ...

In a word, no, I don't believe Freemember has template tags to adjust the email activation page. This could probably be added to freemember with a pull request though, the same way the reset password process works.

If you are not using a membership add-on, then the easiest method is to approve all incoming memberships into the default membership group, which requires not activation (I recommend at least manual activation). Similar to what @Mediapimp has done, you would track their membership option and just perform manual escalation on those with additional privileges. ...

I could not find a way to do this using member preferences as they are global for all member groups, so I got a little creative. I created a custom member field and called it "approved". I made it a select field and set the selections to "yes" & "no". In the registration form for the member group that I want to manually approve, I created a hidden ...

I believe you can do this with Postmaster.
