Add ability for site administrators to review new users before they are activated

Reported by Walter McGinnis | June 12th, 2012 @ 03:34 PM | in 1.4

Build on top of existing require activation functionality where user must verify their email address before they are a full fledged user on the site.

If a new Account "Administrator Activates" site setting is true, rather than the user being emailed after registration, site administrators are emailed with link to user's profile page.

On the profile page, when viewing as a site administrator and the user is not yet activated, an "activate" link is provided. Otherwise, if user is active already, that is indicated for site administrators.

Basket members list should also indicate if a user is not yet activated.

Work involved:
1. add new system setting under Account section, Administrator Activates (false by default, accepts true/false) 2. update UserObserver#after_create to check it under Kete.requires_activation? true section of code, make it call... 3. add a method UserNotifier#notification_to_administrators_of_new_user for all site administrators (and corresponding mail view) that gives them link to user's profile 4. add necessary new translation strings and logic to use them
