New User Signup Questions

edited April 2020 in Vanilla 3.x Help

So when a new user signs up they get added to the Waiting for email confirmation group. This group has no rights and should not be able to do anything in the forum till they have verified their email address. but it seems like they get added to the unconfirmed group and the member group..

How can I make it so user signs up and is added to the unconfirmed default group. Once verified they are removed from the unconfirmed group then added to the default member group?

    I don't see a way to do this without a plugin. If you write a plugin, you should take a look at the UserModel. The insertInternal() method fires the BeforeInsertUser which ight be of interest. The next step is the BeforeConfirmEmail event in the emailConfirm() method.
