Authentication plugin – Email-based self-registration with admin confirmation updated for Moodle 2.9

In a recent update to the useful authentication plugin – “Email-based self-registration with admin confirmation”, the plugin has been updated to a new version 1.2 which is compatible for Moodle 2.9

The plugin provides the capability to setup the email-based self-registration with admin confirmation instead of user confirmation on your Moodle site. The confirmation email is sent to the main admin account’s email address. When the admin clicks on the confirmation link, a “welcome” email is sent to the user.


Email body is customizable within the language file. Based on default email-based self-registration module. You can customize the e-mail messages by editing the language file or using Moodle’s language editor.

You can download the latest version of the plugin from this entry in the Moodle plugins database. The plugin is maintained by Felipe Carasso.
