Is there an option somewhere or a way to make sure that all new registrations have to be approved by an admin? This is very important... without this option or a something similar, I cannot use photopost pro
update. I found a simple work around for this. Just disallowed the registered users group from seeing or doing anything and then created a new usergroup for people allowed to access stuff. Once I see they registered and are in the registered usergroup, I will just move them over to my new created group. This should have been common sense, lol.
Yeah since Pro really is not a forum product features you find in the Pro standalone registration may not be as robust as a forum. You can though as you found out set usergroup permissions much like a forum.
