User Admin Approval
As a website admin, sometimes it becomes difficult to protect the site from spam registration. However, if you can approve or deny user registrations, it is possible to effectively prevent spammers. Keeping that in mind, WPUF now has an Admin Registration Approval System that allows you to easily allow or deny when a user registers on your site. From the user listing page, you will also find a new column showing the user status as either pending, approved or denied.

Subscription is one of the most popular features of WP User Frontend Pro. To make this feature more useful, we have added subscription expire notification. This new feature allows you to add new notification for subscription expiration. This means, when a subscription expires, your users will get a notification email. You can even customize this email the way you want. Neat, right?
