How To Disable User Activation Email in BuddyPress
there are a couple of ways to disable the email activation of buddy press when users are registering in your website, but the easiest method is using a plugin to do it, we have tried many methods and the only one that is working is using the plugin that we will link below.
This plugin will take care of everything for you, it will disable the email activation link and it will automatically activate the user in the database and logs user in the website immediately after registration.
and here is the cons and pros of using this plugin:
- Faster user registration Process.
- Get more users by reducing the chance of undelivered emails (if they don’t receive the email they can’t register).
- Simplifying the registration process
- You might get some fake users (robots)
Note: you can have captcha on your registration page to reduce the robot registration (if it happens).
Note2: email activation doesn’t prevent robots, so even if you have email activation robots can still bypass it.
in our analysis, a big percentage of internet users are not familiar with internet a lot and they don’t understand the concept of email activation (the number would surprise you), so you might lose a big chunk of users if you don’t make it very easy to join your website.
