I. Release Notes

Current Version: 7.1
Requirements: Ossn >= 7.1, Anonymous Registration and User Auto Validation NOT installed or disabled
GDPR affected: No
License: GNU General Public License v2


II. Purpose and Usage

This component is replacing Ossn's default user activation process like that:

  • On creating a new member account a mail will be sent to the member as usual
  • This mail includes a link to be clicked by the member in order to confirm her/his registered address
  • The member's account still remains inactive, and the site administrator receives a notification email that a new member's activation request is pending and needs to be validated by him
  • The member may click the activation link some time later again in order to verify the state of his activation request, the site displays a meaningful feedback message like 'activation request still pending' or 'activation successfully completed'
  • Of course the admin may decline the request completely and remove the pending member instead of activating.
