If you have your Joomla site set to allow new user registrations, you should add a layer of protection against registration bot abuse by setting the New User Account Activation Level in Joomla to something higher than "none." How to set the new user account activation level in Joomla is what today's Maintenance Monday is all about.



  • The video discusses setting the new user account activation level in Joomla.
    - The presenter is Tim Davis, a Joomla enthusiast.
    - The video is part of the "Maintenance Monday Live Stream" series.
    - Tim thanks viewers for their support and announces the channel's subscriber count.
    - He invites viewers to leave comments, subscribe, and enable notifications.
    - The presenter shows how to access the user options in the Joomla backend.
    - There are three activation level options: None, Self, and Administrator.
    - The "None" option immediately activates accounts upon registration.
    - The "Self" option sends an activation email to the user who needs to verify their account.
    - The "Administrator" option involves sending an activation link and requires admin approval.
    - Tim emphasizes the importance of securing the site against bots and ensuring proper permissions.
    - He compares site security to airplane rivets and stresses attention to detail.
    - Tim discusses Pokemon Go and a live streaming schedule change.
    - He concludes by thanking viewers, encouraging subscriptions, and preparing for a Zoom call.
    - Tim plans to update to Joomla 3.9 RC for testing repeatable fields.
