Hello,
I could not find an according thread so I open this new one.

We just upgraded from 1.1.19 to 2.0.x
Members are approved by the admins.

Anything works fine but one thing:
we were used to having the notification about members waiting for approval just at the starting page where the member information is listed (who was online today, who is online right now...).
We miss this feature allthough there is the notification email, which works fine.

Checked on different themes, no visual hint that there is a new unapproved member.

Any ideas what we mus change to see this feature again?

Thanks!

Actually, there should still be a notification visible for admins.

Yes, that's a basic feature in most themes, though it may be in different places.  Do you see it in Curve?

when you upgrades, did you, perhaps, try to keep using your old 1.1.x theme?

(hint: you can't do that. 1.1.x themes will not run well (if at all) on 2.0.x)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Hello and thanks for the feedback.

No, we did not keep the 1.1.x theme.
We use "Gaming nation" as a new default theme.
But I also tested the effect with curve theme and the notification for new members is not there also.
That's why I put the question here.

It's there in an unmodified Curve (see attachment)

I would wonder if there are mods installed that might affect this.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Arrgh, you are right. In using the curve theme it is there!!! I was so focused on searching it on the bottom information block so I oversaw it in the top.

That was important. Now I know that the standard theme is lacking this feature and I can try to resolve it.

Thanks for your hint!

I don't know what theme you were using for 1.1.x but all of the themes that ship with 1.1.x (Babylon, Classic YaBB SE and Core) all have the information in the same place.

@JessyKa: Can this be marked as solved?
