    Is there a way to make it so some user types automatically register and others require an admin approval?

    Although there is no direct feature available for this but a piece of code can do the job for you.

    add_action('user_register', 'userAutoActivationModified', 20);
    function userAutoActivationModified( $userID ){
        global $userMeta;
        $roleToAutoActive = 'subscriber';
        $role = $userMeta->getUserRole( $userID );
        if ($roleToAutoActive == $role)
            update_user_meta($userID, 'user_meta_user_status', 'active');

    Put the following code in your functions.php (under current theme) or any plugin file. Don’t forget to replace $roleToAutoActive = 'subscriber'; with your targeted role which shall activate automatically.

    Please note, although the user will be activated, they will see default admin approval required message and an email of approval will be sent straightway if it is enabled. To get rid of the default admin approval required message, use ‘Do not use AJAX’ checkbox and use custom redirection where you can write something to show some direction to the user.


    This does not seem to be working for me. It still forces the user to be authenticated by an admin


    nevermind, i got it to work! Didnt realize the roleToAutoActive was case sensitive
