Hi there, please could you tell me how to have any new memberships wait until approval before they can log in? at the moment anyone can enter an email address and a password and immediately be approved without my knowledge. How do I change this? I want to approve before letting people view the area.

When you add a Member Login button to your site, any visitor will be able to sign up and automatically have access to your Members Only pages. However you can choose to manually approve Site Members so that you can control who has access.
To require manual approval for Site Members: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Manage Site > select the My Contacts tab > on the left, hover over Site Members and click the Settings wheel > choose Approval per individual.
Once a visitor has requested to be a site member, you will see a (1) next to Requests on your My Contacts page.
To approve a requests: Click Requests > check the box next to the visitor's email address > click the Approve button.
Note: Approving site members does not automatically notify them. Be sure to send your new site members an email to let them know that they've been approved!

Hi. About the last note you wrote "Note: Approving site members does not automatically notify them. Be sure to send your new site members an email to let them know that they've been approved!"
Is there a way to send an email automatically before and after the approval?
