Create Account Without Email Activation

Is it possible to allow a user to create an account with their email address without requiring email activation? I feel the multiple step process is not a best practice and will reduce satisfaction with the account creation process.

The email activation process greatly reduces the number of spammers who will join your nation.

If you don't want to use the email verification process, you have two choices: 

  • Recommend that those people joining the site sign in to your nation via Facebook or Twitter. With either of these sign ups, they won't be sent the email verification emails. Once they are in the nation that way, if they wish to add an email address, they can do so.
  • If you want people to sign in with email addresses, you can manually add the password to each profile by going to the profile and then going to edit--> password. Once that is done, you will need to contact each person and get them the password you have set. 

Complete and current information on how to use NationBuilder is available in the documentation section.
