You can enable new users to require admin approval. Check out the settings in config.php

$_CONF['usersubmission'] = 1;

I now understand what you mean Blain..
But what I want to do is to stop ppl from registering at all.

I use geeklog for hosting business, obvousely, no Tom, Dick & Harry could just register.

I want to use the registration for clients whose website we host, so after payment confirmation and domain name is pointing to our server, they will be register.

I will now manually include the client in my geeklog members database.

An Idea just crossed my mind, what if I remove
all registration link? can that be possible?

Except for thos who use Geeklog and know their ways round it.

Please I need your help...

Just edit your language file, or template.

the language file around line 107 has the text that is listed below the login-box.

just take out the link. Maybe you want rather a "This is a members only system if you think you should have access contact the admin"

Combine the word contact with a link to the contact-form that you get when someone clicks on your name in the userlist. I personally also included a "Forgot Password"-link

Just include a link to users.php. You can have a little php logic to show login or logout depending if the user is logged in or not. Maybe a small link in the header or only on a certain page.

You can add php code to the header.thtml.

You know, I'd like to say that helped me in some way. But it doesn't..

I have the same issue, I need to make it so only I can register users. But the users still have to be able to login.


I don't do .php wok, so virtually none of what was written up there did me any good.

You could put this code:
Text Formatted Code
<?php
  if ($_USER['uid'] > 1) {
    print '<a href="' . $_CONF['site_url'] . '/users.php?mode=logout">logout</
a>';
  } else {
    print '<a href="' . $_CONF['site_url'] . '/users.php?mode=login">login</a
>';
  }
?>


 

behind [plg_menu_elements] in your header.thtml.
You should look for the text of users.php in your language.ini, because it says something like "oops that didn't work" and change it to something more usefull Wink
