Hold registration for moderation

How do I hold a membership registration for moderation? Registration is free on this site, however an admin needs to review each registration to grant or deny access. What's the process for moderating registrations?

    Hey Rob,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    You have a couple options you could do here.

    1. Setup a default membership and then force user approval with a plugin such as this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-approve-user/

    Then you will need to approve them and the membership will be automatically applied as it's applied to all users by default who don't have another membership :slight_smile:

    2. You could make it a paid membership and use the manual payment gateway, then the invoice has to be approved by you before the membership is applied. Otherwise they will still have same access as a visitor. You could use some custom CSS to hide the pricing in this case.

    Hope that helps! If you have any further questions on this let me know :slight_smile:

    actually, just thought of another option!

    3. Set the default membership so they don't have access to anything. So until you manually move them to a different membership they won't be able to access anything :slight_smile: the membership move would be the approval process.


Thank NAME, for their help.
