[Mailman-Users] Confirmation Page not working

Found the same issue on another board: https://locationtech.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=90 <https://locationtech.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=90>

They mentioned disabling the web confirmation page (and presumably the URL in the confirm mail as well).

How would I do that?

I can see from my subscribe log there are quite a few members pending and I’m afraid they might have come across this issue.
