Settings Appearing in Non Super Admin

Hello:

I have been working on getting my site set up with network settings. I have several questions:

1.) In network settings-settings-new site settings there are options for first welcome email and user email, but there is not a place to change the registration email. It currently reads as follows:
Thanks for registering! To complete the activation of your account and blog, please click the following link:
http://buy-website-online.com/activate?key=0e224d2b35ee744c
After you activate, you can visit your blog here:
http://homeremodel.buy-website-online.com/

I would love to customize this further.

2.) After someone clicks on the above registration link to activate a message is displayed that says you are now registered and you can log in, but there is not a log in link or anything which I know is in the email, but this is confusing. How do I customize the activation page text?

3.) when the activation email was sent it landed in my junk folder! Any tips or tricks to avoid this from occurring?

4.) I have changed the text located at network settings-new site settings-first page and post text... to this....

Welcome to SITE_NAME. This is your first post. You can edit or delete it, then start blogging.

But first...

However, the pages and posts for a new user are still showing the same text that was originally there prior to making these changes. How do I get this text to appear?

5.) How do I remove the notices such as "massive membership upgrades and new wpmu dev releases" in the dashboard of a non super admin?

That is all of my questions! I am sure none of the above is difficult but I have run out of ideas and appreciate your support.

    Hi randit,

    Let's take a look at this inline!

    1.) In network settings-settings-new site settings there are options for first welcome email and user email, but there is not a place to change the registration email.

    I believe you're referring to the BuddyPress activation email? If so, that would be part of the BuddyPress core and there's no easier way I know of to alter that than is discussed at the following:

    2.) After someone clicks on the above registration link to activate a message is displayed that says you are now registered and you can log in, but there is not a log in link or anything which I know is in the email, but this is confusing. How do I customize the activation page text?

    Similar to the above, that's part of the BuddyPress core and from what I see it would require a hack of the core files, something you may want to take a look into at buddypress.org.

    You may want to also take a look at disabling the activation process if you'd rather not have that in place.

    3.) when the activation email was sent it landed in my junk folder! Any tips or tricks to avoid this from occurring?

    I imagine you've got a filter that automatically marks it as junk/spam. Have you checked your filters for that? Perhaps you could create a new filter for these emails too?

    4.) I have changed the text located at network settings-new site settings-first page and post text... to this....
    <snip>
    However, the pages and posts for a new user are still showing the same text that was originally there prior to making these changes. How do I get this text to appear?

    The capitalized texts (ie. SITE_NAME, SITE_URL) are actually variables you can use in the email to represent your site name, url and other data. You can include them where you like in the email.

    Are those perhaps what you're referring to?

    5.) How do I remove the notices such as "massive membership upgrades and new wpmu dev releases" in the dashboard of a non super admin?

    Hmm, have you tried viewing the sites with a non-super-admin account? I thought those would only be displayed to the super admin.

    And just to check, do you have the Update Notifications plugin installed and activated?
