Authorizing members before access (free subscription)

Hi.

Is there any way of authorizing members before the they can access their free subscription?

I want to give access to certain pages for free, but want to be able to see who is registering before I give them access.

Many thanks!

    Thanks Vaughan. This is all pretty new to me so need a little more help…

    This is my wp-config.php below…I think :slight_smile:….Where shall I insert the text?

    define( ‘WPCACHEHOME’, ‘/hsphere/local/home/XXX/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/’ ); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

    Thanks again!

    What happened now is that it sent a activation link to the email I registered and when I activated the link I could just log in.

    What do I do to authorize members before they are able to log in?

    :slight_smile:

    Updated to the Beta7 release and now I get this to the email I register with:

    Username: testmember

    Password: password123

    http://webpage.com/wp-login.php

    And then I can just log in.

    I would like to authorize members first before they can log in and access. Also…do they have do have a wp-login.php page? I just want them to access a certain page on my webpage.

    Any suggestions?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
