receive an email confirmation with a link to set a password is the only to register?
Hi @alfred. Users can self-register (via email confirmation with a link to set a password) - if the setting is enabled. Or users can also be manually registered, in case the self registration is disabled.
You can find these settings on:
then scroll down to find the settings for
Enable User Registration (that you can set to either YES or NO)
Enable User Registration email confirmation (that you can set to either YES or NO)
Click UPDATE OPTIONS at the bottom of the page.
This is from wpForo Documentation on User Registration:
User Registration Enable User Registration This option is not synced with WordPress “Anyone can register” option in Dashboard > Settings > General admin page. If this option is enabled new users will always be able to register. If this option is disabled the default WordPress User Registration form will still be available. But wpForo Register Menu and Register Page will be hidden.
Enable User Registration email confirmation This option switches wpForo user registration function to WordPress Email confirmation mode. Users only enter Username and Email on registration form. After clicking on submit button they receive Email with Password Generation link. Using this link users set a password thus confirm and finish registration process.
Hope this helps. Good luck and God bless you! 🙂
