It depends on the template and if captcha is activated or not. If a template is not adapted to the new VM version and Captcha is activated, customers cannot login. The missing verification code comes from the captcha message. So I think it is a template issue. With the orginal VM (no foreign template) it works as expected. You need a template update if you want to use Captcha or switch it off in the Virtuemart backend, as long as you have no template update for VM 2.6.

Even if you select activation method: none and the user is activated automaticaly, the new users are unable to log in. The system reports "Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet"


Update: It seems that downgrading Joomla from 2.5.19 to 2.5.17 makes the issue go away. I guess that can help with debugging the issue.

I deactivated the user registration and it works normal. Due the added possiblity to use a captcha, we think it is indeed the best to adjust the template (or to remove the override of that sublayout) and use the captcha option.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

Hi

Same issue with VirtueMart 3.0.12 and virtuemartemplates.net Illusion. Template is adapted to Joomla 3 versions and to Virtuemart 3 versions (http://demo.virtuemarttemplates.net/). Captcha is not activated.

Activation link work fine with Chrome but not with Firefox.

Any solution in the meantime?

Cheers,

Marc

still can't understand why you would want activation on a shop

If a spammer goes to the trouble of filling all the registration etc (to do what?  Buy a product  :o) he will then activate their account

On the other hand 50% of real clients won't understand why the hell they have to and won't do it..  or wont find the email etc etc

It completely breaks the workflow of the cart and will lead to non sales

If they input the email address wrongly by mistake they never get the mail any way so its hardly a check of email accuracy,.. in any case another sale lost
