Probationary User Class
Sometimes you want to restrict or monitor the activities of a new user.
Sometimes you want to restrict or monitor the activities of a new user. You can do just that with the 'New User' class, which is one of the 'core' classes.
To activate it, set the 'New user probationary period' on the user admin options page.
Once set, all newly signed up users are automatically assigned membership of this class.
The 'new user' status is cleared the first time the user logs in after the probationary period has expired.
How you make use of this information is up to you - it may be as simple as doing more detailed monitoring of user activity.
Its another option available to plugin writers, too - you may give admins the option to restrict features to members of this class (which is named 'e_UC_NEWUSER')
