Hello,

Should users with still pending registration confirmation be allowed to read forums with anonymous viewing set to OFF ?

As of now, it's possible just by clicking on the OK button after the registration process even before the confirmation being done, so that one may register with a fake email just to read some forums...

Reading is also possible by clicking on the OK button of the dialog that appears if you try to login with your unconfirmed account (say with a fake email)...

I guess that's a bug... isn't it ?

I think a solution may be to let users with registration confirmation still pending, stay in a anonymous state (as written near login/logout)...

Regards,

Pierre

This indeed appears to be a bug and will be addressed shortly.

Uncofirmed account will be deleted after X days specified in your config, by default that numbver 7. People with uncofirmed accounts should be able to login into the forum, they cannot post messages private or public or use the email system. The reason they should be able to login is so that they can change their setttings, for example fix an invalid email address.
