This may turn up to being a "feature request" rather than a bug report, but read on... :)
I just did my own test... and registered at my board. I have my validation setup to User Email then Admin validation.
I submitted my registration, and got a message saying a new user had registered, and to my other email address got the email to activate the account.
Upon activating the account (user's-end) I see this message:
Thank you TestUser2. Your registration has been successful. The administrator wishes to preview all new registered accounts before posting permissions are granted. The administrator has been notified of your registration.
Since IPB 2.1.x has the option to validate the email first, then be validated by the admin... once the user validates the email address, shouldn't there be an email sent to the Admin saying the user has validated their email address and needs to be validated by an Admin next... [b][i]regardless[/i][/b] of whether or not the admin has chosen to be notified of registration? or maybe another option to be emailed a notice of a user having validated their email address and for you (the admin) go to the ACP and validate them?
Well I don't know about you, but I don't purposely go into the ACP every day specifically to look for who has registered. I don't want to have to go there and see who's registered, who's validated themselves, and activate it.
The way you word it, I'd be all for the email notification being sent AFTER they validate their email address.
Although I ran into a problem where a friend registered on my forum and he called me and said he couldn't access his email and asked if I could validate him. So in cases like that, I wouldn't mind being notified that someone registered (the first step) and still have an option to be notified when they validate their email. Granted, those situations are rare, but they have and will happen again....
This is not a bug in IPB but is more of a feature suggestion.
