      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)

      Method 1

      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.
