Approving New accounts before they can log on.

Is this possible? I want it set so I have to approve them before they can log on and also they must be approved in order to post anywhere on the forum.

Just go into your Admincp > vBulletin Options > User Registration Options > and set "Moderate New Members" to YES

This will put them in the "(COPPA) Users Awaiting Moderation" usergroup, so you may want to edit some things in that usergroup beforehand

It does that when someone registers. What do you want it to do?

I want to approve the account before they log on and post. I like to see who is who when they sign up. How can I validate if it doesn't give doesn;t let me?

Not sure whether this is the case, but if the user got an invalid email address, or never activated their account, you will not get a user pending in the Admin panel.

The registration process goes like:
1) Register
2) Send them confirmation email
3) Users validate the registration via that email
4) Show up in Admin Panel pending for approval

Then you can follow the steps above to have them approve.

Hope this helps because I was wondering the same thing a while ago and finally found this out by registering an account myself and watched closely to the process. if i were you, i would try to register for an account yourself, to make sure your mail server is working correctly and you can also have a better understanding of the process.

Chris
