Support » Plugin: Registrations for The Events Calendar » Confirm before actually registering

    Apologies if this is a feature in the Pro version or I’m missing something silly here, but in any case, I’ve searched around and not found any hits on this topic. Currently a site visitor can register for an event using any name and email address so it is open to the possibility of someone just making up a bunch of names and addresses to register. Is it possible to not let them register until they reply to the confirmation email that they receive?

    If not, I’m guessing the only solution will be to enable memberships on my site and require each person to create an ID first per the topic discussed here – https://wordpress.org/support/topic/mandatory-login/ – but I’d really like to not have to go down that route if possible.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hey again Chuck,

    This is a “Pro” feature at the moment. You can have attendees verify the email address he or she entered before the registration is considered “confirmed.” This is done through a special link sent in an email. Once an email address is verified it can be used over and over again.

    Thanks again, Craig. My bad…

    I completely missed the line — “Force unknown visitors to verify an email address” — in the Pro version’s description. So it looks like you got me hooked into buying Pro now-:)

    I can’t take the chance of players either signing up friends to get them in first or even worse, taking someone else out if they know another player’s email address. We’re in a retirement community and some of these guys can get cut-throat for their $10 entry fee – LOL!

    Now go get that waiting list feature working and you’ll really have a product that will not only be useful for any type of tournament, but also for things like registrations for classes, seminars, presentations, etc.

    Have a good one,

    Yeah I can see how the waiting list feature would be useful. We have a few major features we’re working on but I think something like a waiting list makes sense to add sooner rather than later.

    I suppose it’s a sign of a good league when your members are cut-throat!

    We’re occasionally add “Pro” features to the free version. I’m not sure if this one will make it at this point if anyone else comes across this thread.

    Thanks,

    Craig
