Account Activation Mode

  • Users must activate their account via email (default): users must confirm their email address by following an activation link that is sent them via email
  • Administrators must activate accounts: a newly-created user account must be activated by an administrator
  • Accounts are active by default: newly-created accounts are automatically activated.

Note: this setting only affects accounts created via the Register.aspx page. The activation status of accounts created with the admin panel is decided by the administrator that is creating the account.

Change Moderation Mode

  • Disable moderation (default): no moderation is performed
  • Require Page Viewing permissions: anyone who has viewing permissions for a page can edit it, but the changes are held in moderation; anyone who has editing permissions for a page can edit it without restrictions and can also approve a draft
  • Require Page Editing permissions: anyone who has editing permissions for a page can edit it, but the changes are held in moderation; anyone who has management permissions for a page can edit it without restrictions and can also approve a draft.

Note: drafts can only be explicitly approved/rejected by an administrator in the Wiki Pages screen. All other users that are able to save a page can approve a draft only by explicitly editing the page and saving the changes, thus making them visible to all users.

Every time a draft is held in moderation, all users who have approval permissions are notified via email. Normally, this group of users should be small.

Side Projects

  • RESX Synchronizer allows to synchronize multi-language .resx files (used for the development of ScrewTurn Wiki).
  • Pixel Picker enables to pick the color of pixels on your screen — very handy for day-to-day graphics-related activities.
