I'm not sure what exactly doesn't work...

This mod is to enable the resending of an Activation Email Notice, one that is customized on your behalf in the Administrator/manager.

The fact that "No link in the body" indicates to me that the mod was installed, and the email is being sent. As to the content of the email entered, I'm not quite sure...

Did you enter a "Resend Activation URL Email" in CB Configuration Manager? (I'm assuming so...)

Does the email get sent to the correct, unactivated user's email??

If so, then you'll need to enter placeholders such as:

What or where is the "Administrator/manager" in the backend, do you mean the CB/config or the CB/plugin menu. I saw nowhere to enter the message as you mentioned. Perhaps I am missing something here, if so I apologise for being such a noob....

Thanks for your understanding.

If you got THIS mod installed and actually sending emails, then you deserve to drop your Noob status :)

Login into your Joomla administrator:

Click 'components > community builder > configuration'

Then, click on the 'Registration' tab and look for: 'Resend Activation URL subject' and 'Resend Activation URL Email'

OK I have it working with 1.0.2! Yee Har!

So in summary the procedure is:
  1. Download the attached file
  2. Goto the /administrator/components/com_comprofiler directory
  3. Rename the following files admin.comprofiler.html.php and admin.comprofiler.php
  4. Upload these two from the zip file you downloaded above files to this directory
  5. Goto the /components/com_profiler//plugin/language/default_language directory
  6. Rename the default.language.php file
  7. Upload this file from the downloaded zip file
  8. Login to the admin backend of your website
  9. Goto Components/Community Builder/Configuration
  10. Select the Registration tab
  11. Scoll down to see the "Resend Activation URL Email" and enter an email subject
  12. Enter a message text as wellin the box below
  13. Goto Components/Community Builder/User Management
  14. Click on the "Resend" label next to un activated user

And your problem is resolved!

Many thanks for all your responive help

BTW, I have not changed anything in the attached file, simply renamed it and put it here with the procedure to use it.

I would be careful, as the attached file was specifically noted as "pre-modded, v1.0.1 files". I would *not* recommend overwriting your 1.0.2 files unless absolutely sure nothing has changed in each of those files since 1.0.1 :blush:

However, great news to hear all is working for you, as well as w/ 1.0.2 ;)

That's why at step 2 and 6 I rename the original files. NOTHING is overwritten, and if anything goes wrong, recovery is simple. Simply delete the uploaded files and rename the renamed files back to thier original names.

Good, glad to see you made a backup! (Phew!)

I didn't mean the actual files overwritten (well, I did but...)
I am more concerned about the CODE that has changed within those files that you backed up. While you might have backup now, and a functioning "resend activation method", who knows what might end up breaking/missing down the road.

For one, the language file alone! It's possible verbiage was changed/added/removed since 1.0.1, in which case, it now exists again for you, even though on 1.0.2, catch my drift?

You may want to consider following the step-by-step, using the working 1.0.1 as an example, and implement the changes manually.

Otherwise, best of luck! If anything starts getting quirky, you know right where to go!! ;)
