Hello all,
Is it possible via the admin control panel to enforce this i.e. new users require a mod/admin to accept membership before granting access to the forum or would it be a question of adding a new role/access mask and restricting access to everything until an admin approves their account and changes there role to one which accurately reflects there intended privileges?
cheers, James.

Yes it is Possible via the Roles and Access Masks. There are multiple ways to create such solution. I think the easiest solution is to...

- Create a New Role something like "Unauthorized User" make sure the Setting "Is Start" is enabled, limit all Settings of that User or copy the Settings from the Guest Role
- Assign all Access Mask for all Forums to "Read Only" or whatever you like.
- Disable the "Is Start" Setting from The "Registered" Role

Optional: Enable Email Notification for the Users that should authorize the Users.

Then you have an Manual Approval Member Registration Process.
