Is it possible to have a user register for an account but only activated after manual approval even after the payment?November 14, 2009 at 1:37 am #15977
Update: You can enable manual approval of users by checking an option in the settings of the plugin.
The plugin is based on the instant download and instant member access philosophy. I don’t like it when you have to wait to get what you paid for. You as the administrator can deactivate/cancel their account anytime anyway if they violet the Terms and conditions.
Please read below for a tweak that will let you manually approve members.February 7, 2010 at 4:28 am #15978DieterMember
Hi, just purchased your plugin. Great stuff, just what I was looking for. However, I also would like the feature chodhry is asking for. I don’t think you should leave out such a basic feature just because you “don’t like it”. I think this is an option many webmasters would like to have.January 16, 2011 at 10:09 pm #15979adam_paxtonMember
Hi. Excellent plugin but I’m also after the same functionality chodhry asked for. I can understand the rationale for your decision not to create this feature. However, your plugin is so powerful there is probably a few of us using it for different means where admin approval is required.
I’m using it for an companies internal document library and the admin needs to approve the registration applications. Your plugin is idea apart from the lack of support for this feature.
Is there a way around this or a way to force the user registration to be ‘inactive’ by default?
Many thanksJanuary 17, 2011 at 5:05 am #15980
Yep, you should be able to make it so when an account is created the status is set to “inactive”. This way an admin can review the details and set the account to active which gives them ability to log in and view the protected content.
Do the following for this:
1) Open the “eMember_misc_functions.php” file of the eMember plugin and search for the following:
The value of that variable will be set to ‘active’. Just change that value to ‘inactive’. Do this for all the occurrences when you search.
2) Open the “eStore_misc_functions.php” file of the eStore plugin and search for the following:
$account_state = 'active';
Once you find it change it to the following:
$account_state = 'inactive';
Save and upload the files to the corresponding plugin directories. Now when someone becomes a member his/her account status will need to be manually reviewed and set to active before the account can be used.
Let me know if that helps.January 22, 2011 at 8:09 pm #15981adam_paxtonMember
Yeah that’s perfect and did the job.
Simply because the support is so good and I’m lazy – I’ve set it up so the administrator gets an email when a new user registers. Which file can I edit to customise the administrator emial message to say ‘A new member called has registered – please login and make their status active’

A copy of the member’s email body is attached to the admin email. But some additional messages are also attached at the top of the admin email which you should be able to customize from the language file. Please open the language file and search for the following line:
A new member have registered. The following email was sent to the member.
Once you find it you can change it to whatever you want.
Please have a look at the following post on how to customize the language file:July 13, 2011 at 3:10 am #15983
Added the following checkbox in the settings menu of the membership plugin to handle this option:
Manually Approve Member RegistrationNovember 1, 2011 at 9:13 pm #15984drumkeyjwMember
Is there an option for the plugin to send out an email after a new user’s account has been approved?
I know there’s an option for sending out an email when the user first creates their account, I’m wanting to send an email when the account is approved as well.
Thanks!!!December 14, 2011 at 10:52 am #15985TimboMember
I agree, the ability to have an email sent on approval would be a great addition to the plugin. Also, even if the setting to approve registrations has been checked, the user is still invited to log in as soon as they have registered (even though they can’t until the account’s made active).
Otherwise, thanks for a great plugin.December 15, 2011 at 5:13 am #15986
You can customize the welcome email (after registration email) to say whatever you want from the email settings menu of the plugin. Will look into adding an option to send an email at approval.February 14, 2012 at 6:53 pm #15987hmuellerMember
Thank you for adding the approval checkbox, it is just what is needed!
Have you added an “email on approval” yet? If so I would download the latest build
ThanksFebruary 15, 2012 at 7:04 am #15988
No, haven’t added an email on approval option yet.February 29, 2012 at 4:06 pm #15989TOEdotCOMMember
The “email on approval” option is a feature I would like as well.
Is this option still in development?March 7, 2012 at 3:07 am #15990
We have added a quick notify feature. You can send a quick notify email to your member when you are changing his/her account status. This way they will know when their account is active for example. Get a new build of the plugin and look for the following checkbox when you are editing a member profile:
Send a Notification to the User
