I am using a custom role for activating user accounts. However, since this custom role is not a site ‘admin’, when they click the activation link, it says “not an admin” at the top of the users page. So, I am manually sending them to the Pending Users page and from there they can activate. So, I don’t want the activation url to be added to my custom html email. However, it keeps adding itself to the bottom of the message even though I am not using the %activation_url% tag anywhere in the message. Please let me know how I can disable the activation link from appearing in my emails.
P.S. the version is 1.4.2 but that option was not available under “User Meta Version” when posting this.
This is a little unfamiliar situation for activating users with a non-admin role. Activation URL is by default added to make sure the link is there even if someone missed it in the settings. But thank you for letting us know the issue. We will consider this in the future release.
No worries. It is working well enough for me now. I created a separate role and gave it permissions for managing users. That allows them to activate/deactivate new users who have registered through the site without giving them full admin access.
