Membership: Allow users instant access to content when they register

Hi, how can i let users have instant access to content as soon as they register? It says they can't until I log on and make them active. The membership is free to access the resources. It worked earlier today until I found out that there was a newer version of Membership. I installed the new version. I also installed 'login with ajax' so users could login. I also installed Buddypress so I could add fields to the registration form. Now it won't let users assess to the freemium content util i make them active and it no longer emails me when someone new registers.

please help.
