How to: admin approval required registration

  • Naomi


    I’m running WordPress 5.8.1 running Astra theme.
    Buddypress 9.11

    This is an odd question, but I did something that I now can’t figure out for the life of me on my website to require admin approval for registration. In other words, when someone tries to register, I have to approve them before they can engage with the site. I looked through all my plugins listed below and one of them is giving this functionality, but I can’t figure out which one and how. I want to replicate it on another site I’m working on but I’m not able to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

    I thought maybe BP Simple Private, but that only makes the site private, it doesn’t provide the approval process functionality.

    Thank you. I tried that plugin and it worked except for my Members and Group page links in the menu still showed as well as the members avatars on the sidebar on pages. It seems like every which way I go some functionality is missing. I finally got it to where I wanted it on my other site which is why I’m trying to figure that out. I’ve spent more hours than I’d like to admit working on this. I really wish BuddyPress would make it a standard feature to privatize a site and monitor registration. I’ve been wishing for that since I had a paid ning site years ago.
