    hi there!

    i'm looking for a plugin that prevents new users from logging in until i've activated them / i've confirmed their registration. i do this, because i only want friends to view my blog and i've restricted the access to logged in members only. is there a possibility to do this?

    thanks in advance

    Did you try searching? I'm not sure any of these work, but take a look:

    yes i tried searching and none of these plugins suit my needs.

    i want to be able to manually activate new accounts (and only manually - the user must not be able to activate the account himself)

    any other ideas? =)

    No Role for New Users
    Download plugin | View source

    When the plugin is activated it will insert '— No role for this blog —' as an option for the New User Default Role setting under Options > General.

    It also has a single user-configurable variable you should know about:

    $norole_text = This text string displays with the "Registration complete" note on the registration form page. The default text is 'Note that new users must first be confirmed by an administrator.'

    You can edit the variable either through the Plugin Editor in WordPress, or in a text editor off-line.

    thanks, but this doesn't solve the problem. the newly registered user is still able to login to my blog, even though he's not allowed to go to the user-profile page...

    What then are you using to limit non-users from accessing it?

    Simple plugin, very handy, seems to work:


    I found also some commercial solutions that may have more options but this served my needs perfectly.
