User Registration question - using an approval plugin

  1. I'd like to upgrade to the Developer license to use the User Registration addon but have a question.

    I understand there's no built-in approval process and that you recommend having people sign up for one role without content access, then manually upgrade their role when approved.

    I'm wondering if the User Registration addon uses WP's core registration process so that I could use a plugin like New User Approve: Or if GF uses some customized registration process so I couldn't do that. Any ideas?

  2. Hi Redkite,

    Gravity Forms only uses WordPress functions to register users; however, it does not use the same process which may result in conflicts with other registration-related plugins.

    I took a look specifically at the New User Approve plugin and unfortunately the Gravity Forms User Registration Add-on will not work with this plugin as this plugin relies on the user having been registered through the default WP registration page.

  4. I got this to work with 'New User Approve'. Create a hidden field called user status in your registration form and put in the value 'pending'. Go to the user registration add-on and add a new User Meta field with the hidden field you've just created. Call the new User Meta field 'pw_user_status' and now when someone registers they will drop into the 'Users Pending Approval' tab of the New User Approve plugin.
