Setting Up User Moderation in WordPress - ProfilePress

Setting up User Moderation

ProfilePress User Moderation addon allows you to decide whether to approve newly registered users or not. You can also block and unblock users at any time.

Activating the Addon

To activate the MailChimp addon, go to ProfilePress>>Addons>> Scroll to User Moderation and switch it ON

After activating the addon you will receive a notification email about each user registration and you can choose to either approve or reject the user. And new users accounts will be in pending mode until you approve or block them.

If there are users awaiting approval, you will also see an admin notice as well as a note in the “At a Glance” dashboard widget informing you about it.

When a user is approved/rejected, the user will receive an approval/rejection email sent to his registered email. The same thing happens when a user is blocked/unblocked. To customize the email content please check our Email Settings article.
