User Moderation

The User Moderation module allows you to moderate users upon registration. If you do not see the “Moderation” tab when viewing the WP Login and/or WPS Pro Login settings page, click on the “General” tab, followed by the “Extensions” sub-tab. Then check “Enable User Moderation” and click “Save Changes”.

Upon activation of this module, a new user role will be created, titled “Pending”. This role has no privileges by default. When a user confirms their e-mail address or when you approve a user, they are automatically assigned to the default user role for the blog/site.
