User registration

Post by Dirk Engelage » Thu Dec 20, 2018 8:15 pm

I've been looking around the forum and it appears it was very long ago that this item was discussed; posts from 2004 and 2005.
In the plugins I only found User-Self-Registration, but it does not seem to work.

I already created a new group; Readers, with only right to read and comment (the only option activated in the group settings is access to personal configuration). That seems to work, as I created a new user, and made it a member of the Readers group. Login in as that user I enter my personal configuration space, but that is empty, and can go to the site itself and comment on an article.
So far so good. But how can I allow people to apply as a Reader only member (setting that as standard for new users (how and where to do that?), without having to do that myself, manually. Like I said; User-Self-Registration plugin seems to do nothing. Of course I want the option to allow or disallow the user application before their membership becomes active (how and where?).
Is there some plugin or other that can do this?

TIA, Dirk
People are far too interesting to be ignored!
