Forum OpenACS Q&A: Unable to approve members from within a subsite
When someone self-registers from inside the subsite (/subsite/register), they are required to be approved.
However /subsite/members does not show the users awaiting approval. This is the case even when logged in as SWA.
It appears there are no users in that state attached to the subsite application group.
Main site members (/members) does show it, but the theme is wrong and I do not want to give my subsite admins this level of access.
Can members be approved from inside a subsite?
The split of site-wide and subsite admin is not clear, and it only really works correctly if you only use the main subsite, and site-wide admin together.
Basically you only want to let the subsite admin deal with members of that subsite, but main subsite admins could still approve all members of the site.
Every registration adds the user to the main subsite, and in your case, you probably want to not require approval for the main subsite, but only for the host node mapped subsite.
