I wanted to change the default user registration scenario. My desired workflow is the following:

1.- The user enters in the "create account" form and enters all the user data: username, email, password, reminder question, etc.. 2.- Joomla creates the account but the user is not active. 3.- Joomla sends an e-mail to the user e-mail account with a portal link to an url that activates the user 4.- The user makes click on the link and Joomla activates the user

Are there any plugins to achieve this workflow? Any help is appreciated?

This will send out an activation email to users once they register that requires a link being clicked to authenticate an account.

  1. Click on Users > Manage Users
  2. Click the Options button on the top right.
  3. Under "New User Account Activation" choose: Self

This is how i have my site configured. Hope it helps
