|How to activate a new member?|
|Any member that wants to register on your forum needs to feel registration form. The newcomer fills in the compulsory fields the username, the email address and a password and optional fields like country, gender, hobbies...|
3 activation modes
Once the registration done, the new member can access your forum depending on your activation choice. Indeed, on the administrative panel, the founder can select the activation mode:
Admin panel >> Users & Groups >> Users >> User options
- No activation: new members can register to your forum without any activation
- User: Users activate their account by received an activation email.
As long as the new member does not validate the link in the activation email, the member stays on the "inactive member list". You can manually activate those members via the "Inactive users" list:
- Admin: The admin receives an email and has to manually activate each new member. The admin can verify the user profile before the final verification.
Please note: Your new member receives a notification email online when you validate his/her profile via the email. If you validate the new member via the "Inactive list' the member won't be informed.
By default, mandatory fields are: username, email address, password and password confirmation.
Then, you can add other mandatory fields.
Admin panel>> Users & groups>> Users>> Profiles
Click on profile fields. You have all profile fields and you can create your own fields
Select the field you want to make mandatory => edit =>
