Does the "Activate your account" link, in emails sent to new users, have an timeframe for expiration? I've had a few of my users run into a "Invalid verification code" error when clicking on the link, after waiting a couple days. If I resend the email, and they click on it within a few hours there's no issue.

I've looked through the docs and posts here and don't see any reference to one. If there is a default expiration, is this something I can override?

The verificationCodeDuration config setting is what you're looking for. Defaults to 24 hours.

  • Thanks Brad! Must have had my eyes closed while I was looking. Heh.

    @bradbell is there a way to show a custom page/error massage if the verification link has expired? Commented Jan 31, 2017 at 17:04
