New Registration Manual Approval

  • D L


    I actually thought this was a part of WordPress but I’ve been searching docs and googling and haven’t found anything specifically.

    The site is for a physical membership site and only members in good standing will be allowed to register for an account and therefore able to use BuddyPress.

    So the potential new user would fill out the registration form, submit, verify there email and wait for approval from the officers. The BuddyPress registration form will have an extra field to identify the member by their membership number.

    The key is that only accounts that have been approved can see any of the BuddyPress features like member profiles, directory etc. non-logged in users shouldn’t see anything from BuddyPress except the login and registration pages.

    I’m hoping this is easier than it looks so far.

    Just thought I’d let everyone know what I’ve found. Did a lot of searching for a way to handle this and ended up using the WP plugin

    All In One WP Security & Firewall

    Which has as one of it’s many features the ability to set up manual registration.

    Then I used the WP plugin BuddyPress Lock

    To prevent anyone but registered and logged in users from seeing BuddyPress pages.



    Thanks for updating that post. Good to know of a potential solution for that.
