[resolved] How to Activate New User? (7 posts)

    I need help, a bit lost here. Searching around but didn't found how, especially without plugin.

    Quick question:
    How to activate new user in WP multisite?

    Long explanation:
    I have Super Admin access and need to create 2 more administrators for all sites. I created them here: example.com/wp-admin/network/user-new.php. Set their role as administrators and added them to all sites. I as one of that 2 new admins checked my email and tried to login in example.com/wp-login.php and example.com/admin. But got messages:

    ACCOUNT PENDING: Your account is currently not active. An administrator needs to activate your account before you can login.

    I didn't find any options to activate or reject new user registration in admin interface. I checked my Super Admin's email, I just got notification about new user registration that just stated their username and IP address. No options to activate/approve or reject. I checked my new admin's email, only username, password, and link to http://example.com/wp-login.php.

    Really, how to activate new user?...

    If it's matter: I turn off user registration, so I have to created new user for whoever want to be a user on my site.

    Okay, I found out what causing this.

    It's All in One WP Security plugin. I enabled manual approval for new registration. (User Registration > Manual Approval)

    So, I have to manually approve all new user in there.

    Sorry for the confusion..
