Email Confirmations

When a user signs up to a membership level, you can prevent them from using that membership until they validate their email address.  This is useful in preventing spam registrations.

This ability is controlled on each membership level you define.  Thus, you can require it for free memberships and not require it for paid memberships.

It is disabled by default.  To enable it:

  • Edit any membership under MEMBERSHIPS->SETTINGS->LEVELS
  • Scroll down to the EMAIL CONFIRMATION section
  • Turn on the check-box
  • Click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page.

Now, when a user signs up for that membership, they will be required to click a link that is present at the top of their standard confirmation email before they can use their membership.

Manual Validation

An admin can validate the user manually:

  • Go to the WordPress USERS list
  • Locate the user in the user list
  • Hover over the user name
  • Click the Validate link

Resend Email

To resend the validation email:

  • Go to the WordPress USERS list
  • Locate the user in the user list
  • Hover over the user name
  • Click the Resend Email Confirmation link
