Show pending user registration

Hello people,

A situation that can cause inconvenience is when a user registers or I myself (adm) register a user and choose to send an email to the user with the confirmation link, along with the password. When this option is chosen, the new user registration will not appear to me as Adm until the user clicks the link (in his email) to confirm the registration.

The problem that can cause this is that the user does not receive the email or he cannot find it, just as it has happened to me. The user informed me that he did not receive the email with the confirmation link. And when checking the list of registered users on my site, this new user did not appear there because he has not yet confirmed his registration. With that I can’t do anything on my side, even though I am an administrator (owner) of the site.

WordPress forgot that detail.

So, I suggest this improvement for the next updated.

If the user has registered or the admin has registered a user and has chosen the option to send an email with a confirmation link, then this new user will already appear in the list of registered users, but it will appear as “Pending”.
So, if the user informs that he has not received the email or is not finding it, then I as the site administrator, I go to the registered user page, locate the new user’s registration with the status “Pending” and click on send and email again.
I could even have the option of myself, as an administrator, confirming the user’s registration, if the user continues to inform that he is having difficulties in confirming his registration.

I leave the suggestion here.

Note: My site has multisite enabled.

Thank you!
Rodrigo Carlos

  • Component changed from General to Login and Registration
  • Focuses multisite added
  • Version changed from 5.5.2 to 3.0

I agree that this is an annoyance not only on sites with open registration but also when users get added to a site by a Super Admin and the "Add the user without sending an email that requires their confirmation" checkbox is not checked.

The WP User Signups plugin handles this by adding a "Sign ups" screen to the network admin. I wouldn't be opposed to adding this to core.

@johnbillion the related subjects you mentioned #31127 - #38789 - #38750 are from years ago. This shows that the WordPress team are not bothering to make improvements to this part of the CMS. Unfortunately!

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac!

Thanks for the ticket, we're already tracking this issue in #16001.

There is another ticket open 10 years ago ( #16001 ) requesting improvements in this part, and so far the WordPress team has not made this improvement? Why this resistance on the part of the WordPress team to make this improvement?
