  • approving members awaiting email action

    Is there an easy way to approve registrations who are waiting upon self email activation, seems some people haven't received or bothered.

    This is common.


    Approve them yourself one by one through usergroups->usergroups manager->Users Awaiting Email Confirmation->Show All Primary Users
    Edit each one and promote them to a regular user.

    Mass send out an email through admin with a reminder and activation link to all those awaiting email activation. Go to Users->Send Email to Users
    There is some code like $activatelink you can put in the message for users to get an activation link. Be sure to choose to only send to those awaiting email activation and not your entire forum users.

    Mass move all users in that usergroup to a new usergroup. Users->Prune / Move Users

    Put a link on the front page to remind users that they can resend their activation code.

      Is there a way to set a time limit up for members to activate their account? So if its not done within a certain period their account is deleted?

        No, this required modifying the code which is not supported here.

        For this, you should search over at as there may be a modification that already does this.
