Feature request: New user moderation
I’m running a BuddyPress website, and as many other admins I’d like to be able to manually approve new users.
I’m using a combination of plugins to exclude spam (captcha, wangguard, etc), but even with a triple redundancy I simply cannot get rid of spam, with the only effect of scaring away real (although lazy) perspective users who might not be able to figure out blurred captcha images.
The vast majority of websites at least verify new users’ email addresses, but that does not seem to be an option with BuddyPress.
Let me summarise:
1. add the option to wait for admin approval
2. add email verification
I believe that these 2 simple additions would be greatly appreciated by the community, especially since BP appears to be the favourite choice for spammers.
PS. Please do not suggest plugins or external services. I’ve tried several, but to date I haven’t found a reliable option (even combining several plugins).
