    New User Approve

    Add to List

    On a normal WordPress site, once a new user registers, the user is created in the database. Then an email is sent to the new user with their login credentials. Very simple. As it should be.

    The New User Approve plugin modifies the registration process. When a user registers for the site, the user gets created and then an email gets sent to the administrators of the site. An administrator then is expected to either approve or deny the registration request. An email is then sent to the user indicating whether they were approved or denied. If the user has been approved, the email will include the login credentials. Until a user is approved, the user will not be able to login to the site.

    Only approved users will be allowed to login to site. Users waiting for approval as well as denied users will not be able to login to site.

    A user’s status can be updated even after the initial approval/denial.

    Each user that exists before New User Approve has been activated will be treated as an approved user.

    Default WordPress registration process:

    1. User registers.
    2. User is shown message to check email.
    3. Login credentials are sent to new user in an email.
    4. User logs in to site using login credentials.
    5. Admin is notified of new user sign up via email.

    WordPress registration process with New User Approve plugin activated:

    1. User registers for access to site.
    2. User is shown message to wait for approval.
    3. Admin is notified of new user sign up via email.
    4. Admin goes to wp-admin to approve or deny new user.
    5. Email is sent to user. If approved, email will include login credentials.
    6. User logs in to site using login credentials.
