#18278 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

Plugins aren't loaded on wp-activate.php

Description loads the theme's functions.php file and calls get_header() and get_footer(), but plugins aren't loaded. This causes inconsistency with every other page on a site.

So wp-activate.php has an identity problem. Is it part of the theme? Or is it part of administration like wp-login.php? If it is part of the theme, it needs to work much better than it does (ie. there's no way to override the markup on the page without the theme hooking into activate_header and overriding the entire page).

My personal opinion is that this page should behave more like wp-login.php. We could even deprecate wp-activate.php and use wp-login.php?action=activate&key=foo in the same way wp-register.php was deprecated.

At the very least, network-wide plugins are activated.

Think this is safely a duplicate of #17948.
