Is there an account approval option?
Hi, I have built a form for my client. I really like your product, but my client is really struggling with the concept that anyone can register for an account and immediately start posting topics. I understand that I can set it so that the topics can be moderated, but I was able to log into WordPress as the new user and approve my own comment! Is there any way to set things up so that a user can register, but can't do ANYTHING until an admin approves the account?
Registrations and logins are handled by Wordpress script and not wpForo. wpForo provides "a form" for it.
I'm pretty sure you can find a Wordpress plugin that does what you want at Wordpress.org.
I don't understand what you say. A new user approve their own topic ?
New user registrations (ACCOUNTS) are done VIA Wordpress script and not wpForo.
You asked "Is there an account approval option" and i replied. If you mean something else, please explain better.
@douglascward If the above happens (a user can moderate his own posts) then you have a wrong setup in wpForo settings and permissions.
There are plenty of faq of wpForo on how to setup the various levels of permissions.
All-in-all, this is a wrong (and dangerous) setup. Redo it.
