I’ve turned on the “must approve users” options in my login options.
When this is turned on, the email verification emails don’t get sent, so user accounts sit as inactive. The message to the user after signing up is:
Thanks for signing up. We will notify you when your account has been approved.
In order to allow the newly created account, I need to activate it, then also approve it. This seems… a bit much, especially since activating an account is sat inside the admin page for the individual user, and the pending user list only shows the user should it have been activated, but not approved.
I would of expected users to still need to verify their emails, which then activates their account, and then their account would just need approving by a staff member or admin.
This is on version: v1.9.0.beta8 +99
Is this just me? is it a bug? or is it supposed to work this way?
