To begin using this site you will need to activate your account via the email we have just sent to your address.] to this one message [ Your membership account is awaiting approval by the site administrator ] so my members wont be confused

    add_filter( 'gettext', 'ps_change_activation_message', 20, 3 );
    
    function ps_change_activation_message( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {
    
        switch ( $translated_text ) {
            case 'You have successfully created your account! To begin using this site you will need to activate your account via the email we have just sent to your address.' :
                $translated_text = __( 'Your membership account is awaiting approval by the site administrator.', 'buddypress' );
                break;
        }
    
        return $translated_text;
    }

    Hi,

    You can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-registration-options/ which allows moderation and members will be restricted to their own profile till when they are not approved. And after approval, a mail will be sent to them.

    Maybe this solution can help you with what you want to achieve.

    Thanks

    Hi all,

    I know this post is a bit older, but is there a better solution to the problem.

    I also want to activate new members manually, but the user should receive a mail with an activation code, so I can be sure that he has registered with his e-mail address.

    The solution with the mentioned plugin doesn’t work either, because when the user activates his account, he can already log in on the site, no matter if he has already been activated by the administrator or not.

    Bes regards,
    Chris

    Hi @behaugabook

    not really.

    I have an idea in my head with user groups and roles, but I haven’t had time to test it yet.

    It’s a pity that there is no simple solution here, because this use case is likely to occur more often.
