How do you manage users in JForum?

In particular, I would like to do two things:
- allow posts by only registered users.
- force Administrator moderation of new users.

Can this be done?

Thanks,
Arie

Yes, both can be done. You go to edit permissions for the "general" group. The settings are:
  • Anonymous Posts
  • Moderation of replies

    Thanks Jeanne.
    It appears I asked the second question poorly though.
    Regarding "force Adminstrator moderation of new users" -- what I was wondering was if when a new user registers, can the forum be set that the new user is not active until a Moderator activates the user.

    Thank you regarding the first one -- I got that set.

    Oh! No JForum doesn't have that feature built in. This post suggests how you could implement it for you wanted to make a custom modification to your copy of JForum.
