139 = Inactive Users =
140
141 If you configured the registration page to enable the **Use Email Verification**, then new registered users are by default inactive. The user account is activated by a link on the email. (See more information in [[Administration Application>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application]]).
142
143 Starting with {{code}}XWiki 11.6RC1{{/code}} the inactive users are prevented to get access to most pages of the wiki by default. The page they can get access to can be configured in the [[configuration>>Documentation.AdminGuide.Configuration||anchor="HAllowedPagesforInactiveUsers"]].
144
145 Prior from that, the **Authentication Active Check** must be checked in order for inactive users to get access to the wiki.
