Email Confirmation Links Not Working

#1
Hello
When new people register on my site and receive the email confirmation link, the link doesn't work and they can't register.

Also, when they try to create a new password the email confirmation link doesn't work.

It says the page could not be found.

What should I do?

For surreyforum, my board url is:

Although, I have no need for email confirmation, I haven't used this since email confirmation has been bypassed by bots for years now

I'm not really sure what email confirmation does, other than confirm that you have the users email (which I supposed is useful for contacting your forum users), but I find it a bit annoying to make users jump through hoops on registration... I would remove my captach if I didn't need to leave there as an example.

Have you got an example of a registration email link (it doesn't have to be an acitve one)

Your Board URL is wrong:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

It appears to contain "/forum" at the end when it shouldn't.
