Email "Membership Approved" doesn't contain a password.

    It can't - the passwords are hashed and never sent via email. This is correct behavior.

    How does user have to know the password? Change it after applying?

    What bothers me is that as Admin I can't see their "Reason for wanting to join" when they registered for approval. Perhaps this will be fixed once Admins get an email notification? (Do say if I've missed something - I'm still playing around to see what details do get sent).

    Perhaps already filed in GitHub (see this post).

    Edit: I just switched Approval to Basic in a site's Dashboard -> Registration section, but got BONK. I changed the config.php line which points errors to error.master.php to deverror.master.php as suggested elsewhere, but still get BONK.

    As @[-Stash-] suggested elsewhere, wouldn't it be a good idea to display full error messages if the user is Admin..? Should be a simple if/then somewhere.

    @Mikhael Are you sure you changed it in config.php (good) and not config-defaults.php (bad)?
  • Options
    Yep, definitely changed it in config.php @Lincoln.

    I definitely think the best way forward in error handling is to throw full errors (but in a nice way) if you're logged-in as Admin. I changed one system to do this recently, and it works very well, with no set-up requirements, thus following the Vanilla Prime Directive.
