  • I hope you don’t get sick of hearing from me. I’m hoping that my questions and/or suggestions may help others, too. 🙂

    Anyway, I would like to be able to create a membership level that is free, but does not automatically approve the member when he signs up. He fills out the form, submits it, and it goes into a queue where an admin and/or editor would be able to review and determine if he is qualified to become a member.

    This is useful in my case because the professional organization I am building the site for has a student membership level that is free. However, the applying student must indicate that they are currently enrolled with a school and taking classes appropriate to the profession that this organization represents. So they accept applications for membership from students, verify the data, then manually approve them as members.

    Is this possible with PMPro?

    You could do this with a redundant level. Create a free “applicant” level that doesn’t have access to anything, but you’ll get the new user notice and will be able to login and change the user to another “real user” level that does have access.

    When creating the second level, choose “disable new signups”. That will keep it from showing up on the levels page and will keep people from sneaking in via /membership-checkout/?level=2, but you’ll still be able to assign it via the admin.

    I know I sound like a broken record, but thank you for the excellent feedback! This is what I call great customer support. I went ahead and signed up for your support plan and will be putting PMPro into active service. 🙂
