Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, but I can't seem to find where the option is to change the verification of new users.

Right now, I have to go in and manually approve each and every new user.

I think Catpcha + Email verification is enough to let them on (I have the anti-spam for forums enabled as well).

Is there an option to do this?

Email verfication can be turned off/on in the host settings under Host -> Host Settings -> Host Setup -> Require Email Verification

Captcha + Email is not a guarantee against "bad" users, but helps a lot with the registration process to be from a valid source.

However, spam bots and paid "agents" will be registering with this automated procedure too so you are never completely safe...

You'll have to check the latest members in the admin page options, but that is less tedious than to approve every single member.

You can suspend "bad" users if they slip through the verification process.

Dear All!

First of all, I love your work 🙂 

We use the yaf forum for internal communication between software developers, at the very beginning. I have not finished yet all needs, but it goes on and on :-)

Please help me with my request:

There is no option (checkbox) available anymore for " Scren1.jpg You have insufficient rights to see the content.", is that right? At the admin host panel I cannot see that setting, as read in some topics here.

We dont need email registration, only create some users for internal purpose.

Can you help me finding that option? 

My Version is the latest V3.1.8, attached the control panel.

THanks in advance!!

Your message is missing the setting you dont find. Can you post again what setting you mean?

Oh, i am sorry, something went wrong when highlighting...

Host Settings - Login/Registration - Require Email Verification

I found some posts with this setting, but I cannot find this setting anywhere.

Here the screenshot, how my admin panel looks like (Host - host settings):

This setting was removed because ASP.NET identity requires email verification. Unfortunately  this can't be disabled anymore

While there is YAF no setting for this (proper approach BTW), you can manually modify the source code to eliminate (or fake) the email confirmation.  I'd have to dig into it, but I'd start out looking at YAF.Types → Models → Identity.   

I've created a few web applications skipping email confirmation, but wouldn't recommend it. It can create a domino effect of issues down the line.
