I registered and I can read El Camino Central but it says I cannot post or reply.
When you signed up for El Camino Central, you were asked to enter a valid email address. Shortly after you registered a confirmation email was sent out to the email address you supplied. Inside the email was a link that MUST clicked on to confirm the email account belongs to you.

You did supply a valid email address?

If you have not yet received that email, first check the spam, or junk mail folder, or even your spam settings in your email program to make sure it did not get blocked. Sometimes just adding the email address @elcaminocentral.com will allow the messages from the site to get through.

There are some ISPs that do not allow emails from forum software to go through because of their strict spam filtering rules. One known for sure is cox.net. Sometimes ATT, (att.net, sbcglobal.net, pacbell.net etc.) domains also block forum emails.

If you still have not solved your problem, please read the other topics in this area of the FAQ for additional help.

I did not get my activation/confirmation email, or lost my activation/confirmation email.

If you do not know your activation code, you can find it in the email that was sent to you when you first registered. If you need the activation/confirmation email sent again, use the following link:

Send new email with activation code
(you must use the email address you used when you registered)

If you have your activation email, but the link in the email isn't working properly use the following link to open up the activation form to copy and paste the activation id manually.

Activation Form

Remember if you have requested more than one activation code to be emailed to you only the LAST one will work. When you request a new one all prior activation codes become void.

I did not get the email to activate my account, what now?

If you have already checked to make sure the email was not caught by a spam filter, then it probably means that your host is not allowing the email through. If that's the case then you can try the following steps to get another confirmation email sent.

  • Click on the User CP link from inside the forums
  • Click on the Edit Email & Password link on the left menu
  • Enter your current password in the top textbox
  • Enter the new email address you want to use (twice) and submit
  • You should get the confirmation email sent to the new address shortly
  • Click the link in the email, and start posting
