Email Validation Hate fake emails? Make sure your users are not registering with invalid email accounts by forcing them to click a validation link that’s sent out with their registration email.
This sets there username to a random generated string (something like: ‘unverified__h439herld3’) so they can’t login until they hit that validation link which will put their real username back in place allowing them to login as per usual.
Unverified registrations have a defined grace period that will automatically delete an unverified account after a specified period of time, so you don’t get clogged up with those fakies. (Manage under Users > Unverified Users)
Go to the settings menu of the eMember plugin and check the “Free Members Must Confirm Email Address” field. When this option is checked, the standard registration form gets replaced with with a small registration initiation form for email verification (the user will see the full registration form after the verification). When a user fills in this email verification form (name and email address) a unique registration link is sent to the specified email address. Users will only be able to register for a free member account after they click on the unique registration link sent to their email address.
