Moderate New Blogs
No activation link (4 posts)

    Hey folks,

    I've already patched my version of the plugin but I don't think my problem was remedied.

    New users can create a new blog that is not accessible and they receive a message saying that an admin must activate it. This is great. However, the site appears in the Network admin panel as being activated and awaiting moderation. The admin must deactivate the site, then reactivate it in order for it to become active.

    Observe...

    Any thoughts?

    Looks normal to me. Click the "Awaiting Moderation" action and you are active in one click instead of two is all.

    That would seem like the obvious thing to do but for some reason, awaiting moderation is not a link and clicking it does nothing. Let me check the markup to see if the plugin is generating a link but my server (which cannot make outbound HTTP requests) is not loading it properly. This has been an issue elsewhere on the same server so could be the root cause of this prob.

    So, 'Awaiting Moderation' is a link that simply returns to the dashboard when clicked.

    From the dashboard, admins are told that there are a number of blogs ready for activation and can click on then name of a site to activate it but the whole process seems a little confusing.

    Ideally, I'd like the user to be able to activate/deactivate sites like they would a plugin from the Sites menu and this doesn't seem possible.

    Assuming that the plugin isn't operating quite right, I might just modify some of the existing code to try and make it a little more obvious for my users.
