feature request: moderate new users

  • It would be good, when open registration is enabled, to be able to approve/disapprove of new users before they are allowed to interact with Buddypress. Right now you can turn off new registrations entirely, or enable them entirely, but it’s hard to moderate them. There is a plugin called Register Plus Redux, which lets you do this on a normal WU install, but it doesn’t interact correctly with BuddyPress.

    Personally I think this should be a high priority because it enables private communities to exist without adding everybody manually.

    I looked at s2member, but it seems like extreme overkill for the kind of stuff I am going to be doing. We aren’t using PayPal or tiered memberships or anything like that. I just want an intermediate step where user are activated but can’t use the site until I manually approve them. As is, it looks like I’m going to have to manually add them…



    i use a plugin called user role editor. it lets u set each role to do only the things u let it.
    make a new users a certain role that u have restricted everything that u dont want them to do. then when u want u change their role to a higher one.

    hope this helps

    @chuckclose1 I don’t see any options to stop creating groups… Were you using this for buddypress or just wpmu?
