setting default role to inactive for new registered users
I have tried some search about this but did not find anything.
I’d need the new users on a bbPress forum to be set to Inactive by default.
the reason is I need to set up a forum for an experiment in secondary schools. we have to take in account the possibility of rude behavior from people not participating to the experiment.
the administrator is not likely to be very present on line, so it would be a problem if anybody could just register and start posting indesiderable contents, that could sit there for a while.
a temporary fix would be setting the default role for users to Inactive (the administrator then has the possibility to verify that the user is really who he say to be). I’ve tried to look into the code, but was not able to figure it out how to do it. hints would be welcomed.
another option (the one I’m currently adopting) is removing the register function and putting something like “write to this email address if you want to be registered”, then using this plugin to allow administrator to add users:
but this is not how really we want it to be. an example of it is the “candidate” system used in vanilla forum: you candidate yourself to be a member of the forum, and if admin agree then you’re in. (why then not using vanilla? because there’s a graphic customization people have worked into, and we are running very short on deadline, say the url is in this morning newspaper… ).
I’d also be grateful for any other suggestions.
