Users can login without activation/email verification? (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I have been doing some testing and have realised users can login without having verified their email address? Is this normal behaviour?

    Yes, so make sure the deafult role is subscriber. Subscribers cannot post or edit anything.

    Thanks for confirming, I thought I was going insane.

    If that's the case though, how can I stop them from signing in if their user_status is still 2?

    I only ask because I use plugins like BuddyPress and don't want them to be able to post anything or update their profile until they're activated.

    Okay, I found the problem. It's the plugin WP Email Login: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-login/

    When a user uses their email address and not their user to login, it's not checked to see if they're active or not.
