New User Approve is a WordPress plugin that allows a blog administrator to approve a user before they are able to access and login to the blog.
I had a lot of "spam" account creations.
This plugin offers a very simple but efficient way of controlling it.
Ergonomic is straightforward but easy to use.
On a new site with a bbpress forum, and using "New User Approve" on the first day I got over 100 spam user registration requests... but at least I knew about them!
I then Installed and configured Stop Spammers with all the API keys and not a single spam request came through. The really good news is that several legitimate users were able to register and I can still weed out any strays that make it through.
As an added measure of security, I put up a Wordfence as well.
The combination of New User Approve, Stop Spammers, and Wordfence has allowed me do something else with my life other than weed through spam trash.
Has help to prevent unwanted registrations from spammers
NUA is an elegant solution to managing site registration. Josh's hooks allow for easy customization.
emails not working. Seems great, but if the emails aren't sending/receiving and this is the cause, it's getting deleted. Several reports on comments w/ no answers, so the plugin is not very good for me if this is the case. Otherwise, it seems like it could be promising and it would be great to use. Using w/ the most current version of Gravity Forms and the User Registration Add On.
Email notifications don't work, and there's no support available in forums.
Love this plugin! It is very simple to use and does the job.
simple and effective
Installed this and quite simply it doesn't work!
