[Resolved] No Moderation Text, No Email, No Access Blocking

  • Hello All, I was hoping to use this plug-in, along with BuddyPress Registration Groups http://hardlyneutral.com/wordpress-plugins/ on a site WP 3.8.1 site I am developing: http://soi-seattle-kinship.org. (I realize that the plug-in is only recommended up to WP 3.5.2.)

    When I tested the new user registration, I received none of the moderation text, no email notification, and could already access and use all the group forums before admin approval. The plug-in did seem to work with the BP Registration Groups, by listing the individual groups on the registration page. (I did try disabling the Groups plug-in to see if it was conflicting with this plug-in, but had the same results.)

    Plug-in authors, will you please respond and let me know if you see a way to make this work on my site with WP 3.8.1? Thank you.

    I would also like to vote, ‘Yes, please’ for having your next update also block unregistered users from using bbPress sitewide forums.

    Thank you very much.

  • I should update that recommended version part.

    Do you have the two checkboxes at the top of the “General Settings” tab checked?

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for the kindness of your reply. Yes, the boxes for the settings below are checked.

    This morning, I also tried deactivating the calendar, as it had a former conflict with bbPress with regard to the settings, and retested, but same same. Thank you for your help!

    Have you ensured that wp_mail works as a whole with your server? It’s what we use for sending out the notifications.

    Hi Michael,

    Is that the same program that sends the emails out about new forum posts? If so, yes, it works. If not, please tell me how I can check that it is working?

    Thank you.


    Hi Michael. Thanks for those great test instructions.

    This is a test of the wp_mail function: wp_mail is working

    What do you think about the other two problems I mentioned?

    Thank you,


    Is the site public that I could see and check how much I could access sans account?

    Hi Michael,

    Yes; I have taken the site out of maintenance mode so you can see it. If you contact me privately, I can also give you the credentials. suracharlier@gmail.com. Thanks for your assistance.


    email me the info michael at webdevstudios.com

    Hi. I would like to follow up about this. The developer of this plug-in, Michael, was very helpful and tested my site. Using his email address as the site contact in the Settings>General he tested, and everything worked fine. This lead me to investigate the possibility that my emails and test user emails might be getting blocked at the server/web-host. They had me check my maildir.>new at the root directory. Sure enough, it was filled with my test emails and site manager notifications. You can read these in Notepad. By submitting a ticket with the valid blocked mail files attached, the host was able to get this working. It should be noted that not all the files were blocked by mistake – many had been rejected as spam addresses of those trying to join the site. Bottom line: this problem was not the fault of the plug-in. Check your blocked mail file at your host via ftp. Thanks, Michael.
