The latest release of ExpressionEngine features a lot of bug fixes (always a good thing), a few snacks for everyone, and a few treats for developers.
One new snacks for everyone:
Added allow_pending_login config override to allow the Pending member group to log in.
With EE 2.9.3, the Pending member group (that comes with EE) is now allowed to log in. You have to enable this as a config override.
$config['allow_pending_login'] = 'y';
This is a small but nice feature, especially if you’re doing heavy member sites that have different states of access.
For developers, there’s now an easier way to get access to the password reset routine:
Added hooks for additional processing after a user resets their password. member_process_reset_password for front end, and cp_member_reset_password for the control panel.
For developers, these handy password reset extensions are great if you are creating SSO solutions.
There you go, EE 2.9.3. We’re only seven point releases away from EE 3, right?
