  • [Forum] Registrations Without Admin Approval

    I have searched for a resolution already in this forum, but have been unable to locate.

    If already addressed - A link to the solution would be much appreciated.

    I have phony users cruising right on through to being registered WITHOUT my approval in the "List users awaiging moderation" queue.

    I want EVERY registration to be in the queue to be approved. Please advise where I can set something to stop the vermin from getting in

    Just to be clear: you have in AdminCP > options > user registration options > moderate new members set to "yes" and they are getting without moderation?

      That is correct - Moderate New Members = Yes

        What else have you done to your site recently... anything in terms of new mods, customizing in some way or?

          First, I don't think there is an option for "admin approval" only moderation. Is it possible a moderator is approving them? Have you checked your logs?

            And at least institute a q&a to block the bots while you try to figure it out.
