XF 1.2 Disable Admin Approval

    Hello,
    I was wondering if it is possible to remove the admin having to approve users to join the forum? It seems like this came automatically with my xenforo install, but I do not want that.
    Thanks!

    It's in Options->User Registration.

    However, it's likely the users are being flagged by the anti spam systems if it is disabled :)

    Yeah it tells me that Admin approval is set to off, but all my users have needed to be approved manually so far. Is there anything I can do about that?

    It is probably your spam settings : admin.php?options/list/spam

    You will have to disable your spam settings, in spam managements options. Although there is a possibility all registrants were spammers...

    The registrants were not spammers because I know most of them, and a few were real life friends. I will go ahead and fiddle with my settings :)

    They may be "real life friends", but something about your "real life friends" was triggering the spam check routines - and it could be because their IP got on a spam list somewhere, their email got on a spam list somewhere, etc.

    I wanted to say that, but didn't.

    @Pengy that's the most likely explanation.

    Facts are facts... something about the user HAD to trigger the spam check routines. No need to try to beat around a bush about it.
