WP Multisite: Managing signups table


we were having some issues with multisite sending out the activation emails. so i whipped up a quickie plugin that queries the signups table and displays to the super admin / admin the activation link (that is normally in the email).

that works.

however, once activated the row / user stays in the signups table. i was presuming that activation would also clean up after itself. yes? no?

or maybe my plugin isn't working, as i think it is?

thanks again

    thanks for posting.

    I believe users data stays in the signups table until that user has been activated. their details should be removed from the signups table once they have been activated.

    it does look like an issue with your plugin.

    hope this helps.

    Hi Vaughn

    Might it be a network config issue?

    The plugin doesn't do anything other than render a list and mimics the activation link as seen in ms-functions.php.

    when I click the link I do get the "thanks, your account has been activated" - as expected.

    but then the user is still in the signups table. That's the rub.

    If it's the plugin - which is just a table bump with links - then I'm not understanding the activation process.

    Your thoughts? Please?

    Is there an easy way to attach a file? You can see the code for yourself. Uber simple. I'm not saying it's not me. Could be. First time for everything :slight_smile:

    But when I get a "thanks for activiating" then I would presume as is well, and it doesn't seem to be.

    Thanks again
