recently i got task to perform email verification when user registered..for that i created for that retrieve all information about user and then add in usermeta table with usermeta key “confirmation”.the value of that key could be random number or timestamp(recommend to user timestamp) the question is how to verify during registration..for that there is a code as follow:

function check_user_status($user, $username, $password) {
if (in_array( ‘subscriber’, (array) $user->roles ) ) {
if (get_user_meta($user->ID, ‘confirm_mail’, true) == 1) { return $user; }
else{ return new WP_Error(‘Account Not Active.’); }
else{ return $user; }
add_filter(‘authenticate’,’check_user_status’, 30, 3);
