Admin approval for new user registration (13 posts)

    I think I am just not finding it, either the setting or the plugin. Is there a way to set registration so that an administrator must approve each new user before their account is activated? I'd like to have some control over who can add comments and interact with the site in ways that are only available to registered users.

    Thanks!

    Well you could set your "Membership--Users must be registered and logged in to comment" in Administration > Options > General and then set "Before a comment appears--Comment author must have a previously approved comment" in Administration > Options > Discussion

    I have those options set. However, there are other plugins I'm using that require a user to be registered but don't have an option for admin approval. Also, in terms of not having to deal with moderating comment spam etc., it would be much easier to have a registration setting that the admin must approve the new user before they can interact with the site.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I've looked for other ways to do this but can find nothing that works with wordpress 2.1.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I use roll manager. Set new users to 0 which essencially they make an account but can not do anything else outside of changing their own profile. Then if I approve them I set their role to a higher number.

    it would be the best if a black list or something like that would be integrated into a next version of wordpress to prevent sending registration emails to spambots anyhow (before they are becoming members/subscribers).
    i know there are several plugins around but i know as well that there can be complications if you use a themed login or other plugins.
    actually you can find something really similiar in your wordpress-admin already at options -> discussion -> comment moderation. this option should be expanded to the registration process.

    "

    Bouncer is a WordPress plugin that enables you to make registration requests subject to approval before a new user is created. It might be helpful in a couple of ways when you wish to be selective about your audience. For me, I have an entirely private blog but didn’t feel like creating a new account for each and every friend or family member manually. Now they can do it themselves.

    Hence, this plugin is perfect when authentication is required and you don’t want everyone who registers with you to actually log in. For example, if you wanted an entirely private blog, you could use Bouncer in conjunction with something like Angsuman’s Authenticated WordPress Plugin.

    If you want this plugin to work, then you need two things as far as I can see. First, WordPress 2.1. I have not done testing on anything else, so I am pretty confident it won’t work. Second, you must run PHP 5 as it will not work with PHP 4.

    I just tried out Bouncer and it works great. Combined with disclose-secret it makes for a really good members-only solution.

    Check out the latest update to the Registration by Approval toolkit. Make your blog 100% registration by approval with one click approval of new registrations - only after which a user receives login credentials by email.

    Works for latest release, WordPress 2.3.3 and comes with full support and free installation if required

    Still can't understand why such a feature has not been included in native WP to date.
