Turning off Registration


Don

Anonymous
I'd like to turn off the text in my 'user functions' that allows for new users to register, so that only the log-in area shows.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

This option is located in your config.php. (/path/to/geeklog/config.php) Set the feature to "true" to reflect the same as below:

Text Formatted Code
$_CONF['disable_new_user_registration'] = true; // set to true to block users.

Does this exist in version (1.3.11sr7-1), I can't find it.

If it doesn't, is there a way in version (1.3.11sr7-1) to toggle this off?

Sorry, this is a new feature in 1.4.0.

I seem to remember some hacks being posted for earlier versions, though. Try searching for those.

Can someone help me

I searched but couldn't find anything. This is the last thing I need to do to get this site up and running (they don't want anyone registering online), and it's driving me nuts trying to figure it out.

ANY help would be great.

Thanks, Don

If you're under a deadline you couldn't you simply turn off the userfunctions block? Functionality would still be there of course, but they would have to know the Geeklog paths to register.

Just a question inbetween:

if its a new site, why not use/upgrade to 1.4.0?
1.4.1 will be released soon also and security/spamprevention/ease of use/layout/speed/etc/etc have much improved since 1.3.11...

you should be able to find "New user" in the language file.
If you remove the text from there, it should be gone. Beware that other languages if they are available to the users might show the text again.

Have you tried searching for disable registration, for example?

Bingo. Removing the offending text from the 'english.php' did the trick.

Thanks for your help!

Keep in mind that this only hides the option, but the functionality is still there. So if someone knows Geeklog, they could still create an account.

I'd suggest you also switch on the user submission queue in config.php, just in case.
