Allow new user registrations to be moderated
|Reported by:||Viper007Bond||Owned by:|
When registration is open, have the option to require manual approval of user accounts before they are granted default role status.
Details / Suggested Implementation
Create a new user role ("Moderated"?) which for all intents and purposes is the same as "Subscriber" (read capabilities).
If opted into, user moderation would assign new users this new role. Administrators would be able to see these users listed under the Users list and click an approve link which would change their role to the default user role (as per the General Settings).
This would also make it easier for plugins to implement private blogs while having open user registration.
