New User Registration problem

I'm testing a new vanilla forum using data migrated from ASP Playground. The migration has been successful but I'm having a weird problem. When users appear as "Applicants" they don't disappear from the list after being approved.

Vanilla 2.1.11

    Do you really want your user's email addresses publicly viewable.

    after you approve - what roles do they have?

    in other words do they become members and still have applicant role. or do they not become "approved" members.

    what values do you have in your config regarding:

    $Configuration['Garden']['Registration']['DefaultRoles'] =
    $Configuration['Garden']['Registration']['ApplicantRoleID'] =

    see FAQ

    Q 18 (and Q19)

    if you understand the userrole table, role table, and permissions tables, it might be worth converting to default roles id numbers, etc.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
