I am afraid it is not possible to use both validation together at this time but is something we are hoping to make possible in a future update. If you need this now, you will need to hire a freelance developer to write this custom code to extend the functionality of the plugin.
Is what you want to send an email to whoever registers with the username and password while at the same time they have to wait until the admin approves the account?
The registration options in the user roles are very robust. I am just curious as to what you want to happen when someone registers.
I can chose between email and admin validation.
When I choose email, the user can confirm his account and after that login.
When I choose admin, the user must wait until an admin approves (even with a fake email adres).
I want the latter to be only possible with a validated account.
A user registers, after that they must confirm their email adres. After confirmation the admin receives an email to confirm the account. I think that would be the best approach (at least for our usage).
A user registers, after that they must confirm their email adres. After confirmation the admin receives an email to confirm the account.
Here is what I would do:
First, you can simply change the user role to require email activation. If the user has a valid email, he will confirm the registration. However, by default the user account is not active yet but pending admin review. You’ll get an email that will alert you to the fact that there is a new user that is updating his/her membership status on your site.
You’ll review the user profile page and if you approve, you’ll simply click on the edit icon and activate his account.
The only thing that would really be different is that, even if the user doesn’t validate his registration, you will be alerted by email regardless.
Would this scheme work for you?
That can be done. I’m not sure an add-on is necessary, but it would require a bit of time and you know what that means. 🙂
It’s not for me but for my customer 🙂
I must ask him.
Ask him what? If he doesn’t want to receive an email when someone fills out his registration form?
And so am I. Are you serious CBServices? Then, that alert option is removed. What’s the problem?
