How to Force Admin Approval of New Users?
If you want to approve all new users before they can actually login and access their accounts/content, follow the steps below.
- Download and install the New User Approve plugin.
- Download and install the New User Approve - Ignore Password Reset plugin. (By default the New User Approve plugin changes the members password to a random one when they signup. Since MemberPress allows the member to setup their own password, we want to make sure we don't override it. That's what this plugin does.)
- That's it! Anytime a new member signs up on your site, they will be held in a moderation queue until you Approve their account via the Dashboard -> Users -> Approve New Users menu.
