But when they click the link, it appears it is getting redirected rather than showing any approval page. The redirect url in the address bar looks to be:
So it looks like auth is preventing access to the approval process?
Please Help! Running v1.9.3.
So, when the option is turned ON that forces users to be logged in to see content, the email approval process doesn't seem to work correctly. YAF authentication seems to be forcing authentication even during the email approval process.
Strangely, when clicking an email approval link, if you log in with any valid existing user, it then does the redirect to the approval page and whoever the user was for the original email approval gets approved.
Is there a tweak (or something I'm missing) that allows me to successfully provide email approval AND prevent content from being seen unless you are an approved user?
I'll take a looksy

I have users registering and getting their verification email, but when they click the link it takes them to the login page rather than any kind of "email verified" message or any page where they can enter their verification code.
What a particular user's browser config prevent the verification link from working?
I basically took the recommended web.config, got mail and db set up correctly, and made no other changes to configuration. It is running in a virtual directory (/forum) so I just set it up as a virtual dir, and copied the bin folder contents to the root.
Any ideas why some users would not be able to verify via email?
