Yes, this issue was fixed two years ago.

Same happened on my new forum, latest release. Is there settings I need to change?

Please, the problem is still there. i just registered now and i have to reset my password before i could login into this site(wpforo.com).

I guess the problem is from the shortcode used [set_password_url], i think there should be  a link to either automatically login the user or a link that will direct the user to the login page.

please is there shortcode for the login page? so that i can replace this  shortcode [set_password_url]  with it in the New User Registration Email for user Message Body.

thanks for your Time and effort.

Hi @greatdyoung

Please explain the problem and leave some screenshot.

After creating a new account.i was directed to confirm my account through my email.

but when i log into my mail, i could see my username but no link for account confirmation instead i saw two links.

the first link when clicked will redirect me to wpforo reset page, of which if i input a new password or the password i used during registration, it will still work.

 

>

 

while the second password will redirect me to wpforo login page.but when i input my username and password, i won't be able to login. it will display an error message saying"the username or password you entered is incorrect".

This is your registration confirmation ink, it also asks you reset the password. Without this step you cannot login.
