Subject: Incomplete link for activating the account
Hello,
maybe I've ignored something.
This is the adress of our board:
www.forum.our_domain.de

Users get a link for activating the account  like this:
forum.php?req=register&id=22&validate=1&key=b69e ... and so one

If they try to click that nothing happens, of course.
If they would read the available help they could copy and paste that string after www.forum.our_domain.de:-/
But not everybody enjoys reading help stuff ...

So my question is:
What should be done in configuration of the board to give users a full link like this:

www.forum.our_domain.de/forum.php?req=register&id=22&validate=1&key=b69e ... and so one

Thank You for any help and ideas!

Regards Karl

What is the full URL of your board according to the board settings? You must tell the board software where it is located at. This is usually done automatically at installation time, but there is a reason for why you can configure that value: it cannot always be correctly determined automatically. This URL will be used for contexts where no relative URLs can be used, like in e-mails.

Hi Yves,
in board.conf.php: home_url= empty.
I had a problem with the URL (described here in German: http://newsboard.unclassified.de/forum/post/10818).
Could this be the reason for my problem?
Thanks
Karl

Yes, that's the setting which is used for notification links. You need to set it to the real URL for notifications to work.
