All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have a WP 3.3 installed and running great. My client would like to confirm a valid email address by sending the user a confirmation email containing a link to “confirm”. I have played around with Pie Register a little bit but cannot get it to send emails like it says it can.
Are there other plugins or tools out there capable of the same thing? I don’t think its a huge deal but the client won’t budge on it.
Also the site sends other emails just fine.
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
This plugin does exactly what you need – Pie Register
From WordPress.org Plugin Directory:
Email Validation Hate fake emails? Make sure your users are not
registering with invalid email accounts by forcing them to click a
validation link that’s sent out with their registration email. This
sets there username to a random generated string (something like:
‘unverified__h439herld3’) so they can’t login until they hit that
validation link which will put their real username back in place
allowing them to login as per usual. Unverified registrations have a
defined grace period that will automatically delete an unverified
account after a specified period of time, so you don’t get clogged up
with those fakies. (Manage under Users > Unverified Users)
maybe you server hasn’t a mail server ,you can use a plugin like WP-Mail-SMTP send email. but i find the pie register plugin register program is not safe,it can register same name and email if the previous register is not active.
you can use the below when submitting the post of your registration form
$userdata = array( 'user_pass' => $user_pass, 'user_login' => esc_attr( $_POST['user_name'] ), 'first_name' => esc_attr( $_POST['first_name'] ), 'last_name' => esc_attr( $_POST['last_name'] ), 'nickname' => esc_attr( $_POST['nickname'] ), 'user_email' => esc_attr( $_POST['email'] ), 'user_url' => esc_attr( $_POST['website'] ), 'user_account_type' => esc_attr( $_POST['user_account_type'] ), 'role' => get_option( 'default_role' ), ); $new_user = wp_insert_user( $userdata ); wp_new_user_notification($new_user, $user_pass);
which will send confirmation mail to the user
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
