Members: Add Member

An administrator can manually create a member record from Admin CP --> Members --> Add Member.

Enter a login name (used for logging in) and display name (used to identify a user when posting) for the member. The login name and display name can usually be the same.
The email address of this member must be unique as IPB uses email as the unique identifier for accounts.
When selecting a member group for a member account keep in mind the member will instantly inherit all permissions for that member group when created.
COPPA User flags this account as a coppa account. This only applies if you are using the coppa system.
You can choose to send a confirmation email to the newly created email with their login details and the password you specified for them.
All custom profile fields are optional for admin-created members. If defined, your member can populate this information on their own once they login.
