Account temporarily on hold everytime a new user signs up

Every time a new user signs-up, after the first post his accounts get temporarily blocked.
Now, the user is not able to post even after signing up for the first time. Help, please.

Have you identified why the user account is getting blocked? This topic might be of help:


This is what it’s showing when a new user is trying to post the second time.

Also, recently I signed up with a new account & while I was trying to post something, the following msg was available:

I recommend tuning the following settings on your forum:

  • newuser max replies per topic
  • max replies in first day
  • max topics in first day

Maybe revert the above settings to their default value?


@techAPJ thankyou so much. I tried it & the new user can now post more than once. Just need to check if the account is still bet on hold after a new user signs up.


Hi …after making the changes in these categories, my access to review the posts before posting by others has been revoked. So now a client can post anything without being reviewed by the admin/moderator.

There are three site settings for this:

  • approve post count
  • approve unless trust level
  • approve new topics unless trust level

Tune them as per your requirements.
