I cannot figure out how to validate users through email using drupal.
admin/config/people/accounts I have Require e-mail verification when a visitor creates an account checked, and under Who can register account I have it set to Visitors.
When I go to create a new account, it says a success message and no email is sent. No errors, nothing in the logs. If I request a password, it sends that email no problem. I can also change my password without entering a current password when using the request password link. So the site is sending emails, just not validation/registration emails.
I have to use rules in order to send the registration emails because the emails are not sending and we have a deadline. I got rules to successfully send the emails but the one time validation link does not exist in the email.
I had to then download Login One Time in order to show a validation link in the email.
After clicking the email and successfully logging in as that newly created user, I am unable to change my password because the form is asking for a current password, which is not available for the user to even populate at the registration step.
I have tried using logintoboggan and tried generating temp passwords to send to the user but the token provided by login-toboggan shows up as nothing when the email is sent.
I am seriously confused as to why this is such a difficult process to achieve. Is email validation this difficult out of the box with drupal?
Does anyone know why drupal is prompting me for the current password for newly created users?
Is there something I am missing as to why only registration/validation emails won't fire from my website, but other system emails do?
