Hey, in the latest build of b2evo, accounts must be validated.

How do we disable this as my testing server does not have any mail stuff set up, so i can't really access the backoffice...

And what was the reasoning behind this change?

You can disable it in Settings / General, where you also setup if users can register at all.

The reasoning is simply that you have a valid email for an account, which also gets used for things like subscriptions etc.

It also is a measurement against spammers that would just register to bypass a captcha image, if it's not used for registered users in general.

Did you have problems with it? Like upgrading your blog and you could not log in anymore?

Exactly, kinda hard to get to the general settings page when i can't log in ;)

to prevent the validation (important for tests in localhost), it follows these steps:

1) open the “phpmyadmin” (or equivalent);
2) click in “database” of its blog; 3) click in the “Table” “evo_users”;
4) click in the top in “browse”;
5) click in “edit” (in the pencil) in the desired user;
6) in “user_validated” it modifies of “0” (zero) for “1” (one)
7) and Save & Go

8) it has access the backoffice

I already did that before my post ;)

But the problem is that the setting to disable Account Verification is in General Settings in the backoffice. Now because it's in the backoffice you need to have a validated account to get there.

So what i'm talking about is having that option in the _config.php file or something. So you can do;
Use_Account_Verification = false; // true,false;

But on the other hand, it would make sense having the administrator group validated property set to true on install/upgraded.
Or having all existing members automaticly validated...

excellent suggestion.
to ignore validation when upgrade of previous version and only for the group “Administrator”
