Registration Approve New Users Frequently Asked Questions

What benefit does this add-on offer?

Simply put it allows you to add a moderation step to your registration process. This can act as an additional layer of security or just as a buffer to ensure irrelevant or low quality users do not end up on your website.

Can the moderator for new users be set manually?

Yes. You can choose to change the email address that is used for the moderator or you can set several moderators by adding in several email addresses and separating them with commas.

In fact the email notification can be sent to any email, it doesn’t necessarily need to belong to an admin or even a user registered on the site.

This opens up a lot of flexibility for you with your workflow as well as offers delegation of tasks.
