Description

I have noticed that two people have registered to CBOX in the last couple days, but neither needed my approval. Also, I did not receive any email asking for my approval.

History

Scott, I believe only the main admin gets email notifications. In our case, it would be Matt.

Matt, can you let us know if the Confirm User Registration plugin is working as expected?

#2 Updated by Raymond Hoh over 4 years ago

The plugin appears to be working, however the "USER became a registered member" activity item was being recorded before a site admin could confirm their account.

I've updated the cbox.org repo so the activity item is no longer created when a user activates their account via email. Instead, the item is recorded when a site admin confirms their account:

Boone needs to deploy this to production.

Also, I just checked CBOX.org, and there are some users that are awaiting confirmation:
http://commonsinabox.org/wp-admin/users.php?page=confirm-user-registration&tab=pending

IMO, the first two users can be confirmed; the rest should be deleted.

Thanks, Ray. Changes have been deployed. Scott, does that solve the problem on your end? Had you recognized the new users just by the posts in the activity stream? They hadn't been creating content, right?

Ray - Scott's email address is listed as the admin email: http://commonsinabox.org/wp-admin/options-general.php Strange that he wouldn't be getting the emails.

I've approved the two users Ray mentioned - I agree they look good. I wasn't sure about the other four, so I'll leave it to someone else's sage judgment :)

#4 Updated by Matt Gold over 4 years ago

Thanks, Boone. I checked through the rest of the list of users and they looked spammy to me, so I deleted them.

Scott, have you been receiving any email notifications?

Going to close this one as resolved. Scott, if there are still problems, please reopen with details.
