• HOWTO manually confirm pending user accounts

last modified June 4, 2009 by ejucovy

you must be a site administrator for this to work.

suppose you have a user Jeremy who has registered for a new account and, for some reason, cannot confirm his account.

1. log in as a site administrator and visit the url:

/portal_memberdata/Jeremy/content_status_modify?workflow_action=register_private

now the account has been confirmed, and Jeremy should be able to log in successfully.


2. next, visit the url:

/portal_memberdata/Jeremy/content_status_modify?workflow_action=make_public

now the account has been made public, and will show up on search results etc as normal.


3. Jeremy must log in to his account in order for his personal pages to be created at /people/Jeremy/ and in order for any queued project membership requests or membership invitations to be activated.
