New commenters must confirm their email


This dynamic configuration parameter configures whether users registering on comment pages are required to confirm their email before they can log in.

  • If set to On, every registering commenter will receive an email with a confirmation link. They won’t be able to log in until the link is clicked (and the email is confirmed).
  • If set to Off, commenters will be logged in immediately upon registration. This is not recommended due to security considerations; it may also render the user account unusable in the future if they misspelled their email address.

This setting applies only to websites embedding Comentario. For the Administration UI there’s a separate configuration item.
