    well..
    i keep guests browsing the forum and when he register and not active the code he will see hidden Cat-forum with name ( Awaiting Email Confirmation forum )
    when the user register he will see nothing just one forum tell him that his registration not completed and he need to active his account by going to his email ...etc.

    after when he active the code the Awaiting Email Confirmation forum will hide and he will see the other threads and he will be member with full permission

    all this done by forum permission no hacks/plug-in

    goodluck

    you know when they are fake when its [email protected]

    Or sometimes i put them in validation
    Thats what I do also, unless there log-in as a member. They cannot view any content on the site, not even in the archive threads or print friendly version. Plus they get a big box telling them to activate there account with links to resend and change email address. When they come back as un-validated login in thinking they can view thread content.

    Seems to be working great.

    If you have a customer service forum change your permissions so Users Awaiting Email Confirmation/Moderation can post in it. Add help links in appropriate locations that start a new thread in that forum.

    You can send a mass email to the 'Users Awaiting' group and use $activatelink in the body of the message.

    Admin CP -> Users -> Send Email to Users

    Make sure you only choose the Users Awaiting group.

    You can use the Send Email to USers function in your AdminCP.

    Please note that sending activation links will not work, unless you select ONLY the Awaiting Email Confirmation usergroup in the selections.

    Is there a way to resend validation emails on mass?

    We have a forum with about 1000 unvalidated user accounts, is there a way to resend everyones validation links to those who still haven't validated for whatever reason? This would be really handy!

    Thanks,
    Tom
