Your plugin seems to be what I am looking for, but clicking on the link to your website with screenshots comes up with a 'Notice: This domain name expired on 05/10/11 and is pending renewal or deletion' (I had this the other day when I forgot to pay in time, I panicked, but everything was fine again 24 hours after I paid phew!).
So can I just clarify if this plugin is what I am looking for? Currently I run a blog with travel stories and photo's. Most of my pages are for everyone to see, but some I would like to be private for logged in members only. I would like these pages to show up with a little excerpt (I have these set up on my homepage already: http://www.mafgirl.com ) and then for people to click read more to either get a warning they need to register or be able to read more if logged in.
Currently I have some posts password protected and do not allow users to register, as there is only one option (anyone can register) and I had lots of spammers registering and commenting spam links on my posts. I do not like this set up though, as it is hard to get the password across to users I would like be able to read this (people I actually know) and other users (that I don't know) not to be able to figure out the password. Currently I have said in a sticky post at the top that the password is my name as it is a foreign name with a difficult spelling, but have realized that anyone can look this up in who-is which defeats the purpose, so I would like to try this plugin instead.
Does anyone know of a plugin that will allow me to manually activate newly registered users before they are 'unleashed' on my site? Or does this plugin do something similar as well?
Thanks for reading!
