20 Responses to Auto Login the user after account Activation On BuddyPress Based Social Networks

  • Thanks for this great plugin, test it on my test site and it works

  • Great, works lik a charm 🙂

  • This rocks! Thanks!

  • hi Brajesh, another important plugin!

    could you please tell, is there any possibility to redirect users to the specific my account > settings > page after activation?


  • thanks Brajesh, was able to get it working myself + some comments from your site.

  • I'd like to redirect users to a different page after registration, how would I do that?

  • Is this suppose to prevent a welcome email from being sent out? Right now, if I don't use any other plugins, a welcome email is sent. I'd like to customize that email. I'm trying to use the SB Welcome Email Editor plugin, but it's not sending a welcome email, only the admin notification for new user.

    • Hi Brian,
      as we talked on skype, I will update it here for others.
      No, the plugin does not prevent sending emails. If you are on wordpress single site, BuddyPress will not send welcome emails.

  • It's great that you've created and released such a nice plugin!

  • Hi Brajesh,

    Do you know of a plugin that works like this for WordPress Multisite WITHOUT Buddypress??

    I would love it!

    Please let me know.


  • @sbrajesh, how can i redirect user to edit profile page on activation.


    • Hi Abbey,
      You can filter on 'bpdev_autoactivate_redirect_url' like this
      [sourcecode language="php"]
      function redirect_to_edit_profile($user_id){

      return bp_core_get_user_domain($user_id )."profile/edit/";


      That should make that happen.

  • I have WP 3.4.2 with multisite and BuddyPress 1.6.1.

    I installed this plugin but for some reason once you click on the activation link of the email, it activates the account and redirects the user to their profile page, but they are not logged in.

    Any idea why that would be?

  • I would like to use this plugin but is not working anymore. The ideal is to autologin the user after activation and prompt him to change his avatar.

    Any chance for updating?


  • How do I redirect the auto log in to a custom page. A WordPress page not buddypress.
