Summary of this Tutorial:

Start by activating and installing the New User Approve plugin.

The plugin works out of the box and does not require a setup.

Now when a user registers you will see them to be able to approve or deny the request.

If you approve the user will get an email with their password and if denied they will get an email stating the email was denied.

Denying a user will not remove them from the database but it will stop them from registering with the same username and email address.

    Hi wpbeginner, I installed this plugin in conjunction with Freelanceengine theme, and it seems to create a little conflict. Basically the user gets registered and receives the email but the signup form page does not get redirected to the homepage after registration. I tried to use header location to redirect but nothing. Any idea on how i can force the plugin to override whatever is happening at the back end to redirect to homepage? thanks.

    Hi Thank you for great vids. I have a question. Is there a way where when a user registers on my site that new user will AUTOMATICALLY receive in his or her email the username and password he or she used in registering to my site.?

    This was wonderful! No mucking about, just the straight dope. Ooo, and an actual human voice rather than an over-amplified music track, or a very lousy synthetic voice.
