New User Approve

New User Approve allows a site administrator to approve a user before they are able to login to the site.

On a normal WordPress site, once a new user registers, the user is created in the database. Then an email is sent to the new user with their login credentials. Very simple. As it should be.

The New User Approve plugin modifies the registration process. When a user registers for the site, the user gets created and then an email gets sent to the administrators of the site. An administrator then is expected to either approve or deny the registration request. An email is then sent to the user indicating whether they were approved or denied. If the user has been approved, the email will include the login credentials. Until a user is approved, the user will not be able to login to the site.

Only approved users will be allowed to login to site. Users waiting for approval as well as denied users will not be able to login to site.

A user's status can be updated even after the initial approval/denial.

Each user that exists before New User Approve has been activated will be treated as an approved user.

Default WordPress registration process: 1. User registers for access to site. 2. Login credentials is sent to new user in an email. 3. Admin is notified of new user signup via email. 4. User logs in to site using login credentials.
