My user groups are set that only registered members are allowed to view posts. If a guest comes in he sees only thumbnails. Upon clicking on the thumbnail he is asked to register. After submitting all the information, email is sent to him and blah blah. But He/she are able to see pictures after just submitting their info and have not yet verified their email. Is this normal?
Chuck yet he is able to view full size pictures? How is Unregistered user allowed to do that when Allow only Registered users to view pictures is checked?
The users status is Unregistered in the DB. And shows as such.
Chuck but logically if a member is required to confirm email to become REGISTERED.
And only REGISTERED members are allowed to view full pictures.
How can unregistered members have that ability?
Is there a mod for this?
bogus registrations like email@example.com and the ability for 'unconfirmed users' to view photos is not an ideal situation - just makes it easy work for unscrupulous people to steal photos from the galleries.
Please can this be 'fix' implimented as standard in the next version of PhotoPost and fix the following:
'Unconfirmed users' get the following message when attempting to view photos: "You must be a registered user to view images! To register click on the REGISTER button in the menu above." - This is misleading to users who aren't aware of the difference between 'unconfirmed' and 'registered' users and just leads to unnecessary emails saying 'I'm getting a message telling me to register but I have already registered - what's going on?'
