Invalid activation key.

  1. I tried to register and clicked on the link to activate
    and got the error 3 times of "Invalid activation key"
    I didnt get the second email.
    I got it to resend the password but still nothings working.

    What do I do?

  2. got it working.

  3. Can you post how you got it working? I'm having the same issue and can't resolve it.

  4. Been discussed many times already. Without knowing your setup, your mail reader, if you're using html or plain text, etc, there's not a whole lot we can help with.

    Usually what I suggest to people is copying and pasting the link from either the html source code of the email after putting it into plain text mode into anothe browser window and seeing if that works. If it doesn't or if you continue to have issues, please contact Automattic directly.

    Good luck,

  5. Situation. When I clicked on my activation link, WordPress.com simply yet incredibly said "Could not create user" (even after copying and pasting the link to a new browser window). I did get a password by asking to resend it, but apparently oppositopia.wordpress.com still doesn't exist. I'd be extremely grateful for any advice on the matter, cp2050 or anyone else.
    btw, I use Yahoo mail and it hasn't had problems with links like this so far, but what do I know...

  6. There are activation problems today.

    First retry the process, if that does not work please send a feedback or an email to support@ this domain.

  7. Ok, thank you, :) I'll try again later.

  8. Doh! I had problems of this nature on Friday and submitted a report via the Automattic contact form according to drmike's instructions in another topic.

    Should I re-submit to WordPress support too, or would that make things worse by getting two people looking at one problem?

  9. Send it to Feedback if you can.
    If not, support@ this domain.
