Can a membership be set to pending approval until verification?

A group of people want to create an association site that requires a payment. However, it should not be possible for anyone to join. The current members will have to approve them first.

    That's a tough one...
    Perhaps you could use a custom user role?
    You could try creating a new user role (with a plugin like ) and assign NO rights to that role.
    Not even being able to read posts or anything...
    Then, hard-code a template file for that user role in your theme folder so that wherever they go, they will see a message that says "awaiting approval" or anything you want.
    Then, using the MemberShip plugin, set-it up so that Members are automatically assigned that user role.
    When the current members approve the new member, they can change the new member's user role to something else and so he'll be able to see things.

    I hope that helps...
