Hi,

is it possible to approve user registration by admin before a user can login to the forum?

The pending activations list only shows if the user hasn't clicked the activation link. It would be nice to require a manual approval of the administrator to activate the account.

Is this possible with JForum?

thx

This is not currently built in, but is not hard to implement as a custom mod. Basically, you could modify the ActivationKeySpammer class to sent the activation e-mail to your forum "registration moderators". They can then decided to click on the activation link (and sent the real user an e-mail) or not.

The message that the user sees can be changed by modifying the User.GoActivateAccountMessage property in the various language file.
