Leave out the new user registration, only login, is this possible with Add-on?

    I am considering upgrading to the developer's license, but am unsure about a few points:

    I am doing a membership site, but do not want to enable automatic user registration. In other words, any new member needs to be approved to be able to login. Any "applicant" simply submit info through an inquiry form. Then admin creates an account manually and email the newly approved applicant his account login info. After login, the user is able to view pages that are for members only.

    Can you tell me if it is possible to :
    1. Disable automatic new user registration with User Reg. Add-on? In the words, the page shows only username, password fields.
    2. Manually add user account with User Reg. Add-on or alternatives?
    3. Hide/show pages with shortcode via custom fields (or alternatives)? For example, after login, the page(s) for members will show up as menu items. In addition, the login page(link) would become logout page(link). After login, it would be nice to show which "username" is currently logged in.
    4. I installed the "Members" plugin as suggested by your new documentation and somehow after activating it, the "forms" admin panel disappear. I had deactivated "Members" plugin to recover "forms" admin panel. Have you seen this problem before?

  2. 1) The User Registration Add-On always creates a user, it can't delay this process except when using it with the PayPal Add-On to charge for registrations. We do plan on adding Admin Approval as a feature in a future update. Until then, what you can do is assign the new users a Role that doesn't have acces to your content and then update their Role when you approve them.

    2) See above

    3) Gravity Forms doesn't protect content, the User Registration Add-On only creates users. You would have to use a plugin such as the free Members plugin which enables you to protect content using shortcodes by user role, etc. You can find it here:

    4) The Forms menu is being hidden. Depending on which order you install Gravity Forms and the Members plugin this may happen. Activate both Gravity Forms and the Members plugin and go to the Members plugin settings page and turn on role editing/management. Then go to the Users menu item and select the option for Roles, edit the Administrator role and make sure all the Gravity Forms related capabilities are checked and active.
