‘Declined’ email wrongly sent to registrant
We’re experimenting with manually approving signups for the first time after starting to get too many spam signups.
Under Settings > General I’ve unchecked ‘Anyone can register’. Then, under Settings > BuddyPress > Options > Members Settings, I’ve checked ‘Allow visitors to request site membership’.
Now, when I fill in the registration form, an email is sent to admin asking them to approve the membership request. However, at the same time, an email is sent to the registrant saying, ‘Sorry, your request to join the site has been declined.’
If admin approves the request, the registrant then gets the email to activate their account and the process proceeds as normal. So, it’s all kind of working – except for this ‘Your request has been declined’ email, which doesn’t seem like it should be being sent.
All I can find related to this is this thread – https://buddypress.org/support/topic/membership-requests-email/ – which is actually about the fact that this email shouldn’t be sent to spam signups (seems reasonable). However, while that thread is about the email being sent after admin refuses approval, in my case the email is being sent even before disapproval.
