I have noticed a problem with vanilla after I saw the log of user registration at my site about the notification not been popped up telling users to confirm email before accessing forum. I created a dummy account to clear my doubt and nowhere after I clicked on sign up button it asked me to confirm my email first before I can post in the forum.
Not here the problem starts. My users think they have successfullly signed up but then see there is no option to add new posts or comment. So they leave the forum and half of them never returns.
One of my member had previously asked me how he can contribute coz he couldn't find the option to start new threads. At that point this issue didn't come into my mind and now I know what's causing the confusion?
Please suggest some solution to add a notice after the users are signed up to confirm email before continuing.
