Elgg registration now working!

Last updated by kisssssss4ever Comments (6)

Hi friends

My friend wants to join this Elgg community but the registration page does not work. He fills all the fields and when finish the registration then site takes back him to the main home page. He does not get any email or confirmation on the site by saying his account has created. Then he called me and I tried as well to make an account for him but it did not work.

Appreciate if you can check this please.


  • After few days, still nor reply :(

    Anyone will reply here and help ??

  • What is the name of your site? I had the same problem and it was because the subject can't be longer than 80 characters. When the email was sent it included for the subject Display Name please confirm your email address for The Name Of The Site! If it is more than 80 characters it creates an error in the server log and the email isn't sent.

  • Works for me, I just registered this account to test...

  • The name of this community is very short so the subject would be less than 80 characters. Try changing the name of your site to Hello World and see if you get the registration emails.

    As an additional note, it might have been better for you to post your problem in the discussion area, not as a page.

  • @DanWestlake dear I am talking about this site the one we are ON now. Here my friend can not make account :)


    Thanks Matt Test I will tell him to try again and see again...

  • Possibly the validation email ended in the spam folder of your friends email account (if using any webmail client also check any spam folders online that the email could have moved into).
