The Moderate User Registration add-on for UsersWP, allows you to manually approve or reject new user signups on your WordPress website.
When active, this plugin adds an extra option named “Require admin review” in:
“UsersWP > Form Builder > Account > Form Options > Registration Action“.
After the user fills in all fields on the registration form and clicks the “Create Account” button, they will be prompted with a notice saying:
“Your account is under moderation. We will email you once it’s approved.”
If the moderation option is set to “Require admin review”, you need to manually approve the new users. A new option will be visible on the UsersWP Moderation column.
An option to approve or reject the new user is also available for the administrator inside the new user profile page.
Until approved, the users won’t be able to log in to the site.
Both the admin and the user will be notified during the process.
Following is a screenshot of the email the admin gets when new user registration is awaiting moderation.
