// When user submission is activated, allow users from these domains to
// register without having to go through the submission queue.
$_CONF['allow_domains'] = ''; // e.g. 'mycompany.com,myothercompany.com'


I have user submission activated and I get a lot of attempts from spammers to sign up. At first it was just one or two and they'd try to sign up no more than twice per day but now it's about 30 of them and becoming a big nuisance several times per day.

It would be really nice if we could have an option like the one above in the config.php file to disallow_domains from signing up. :pray:

That's all. Thanks for a great product.

Such an option will be in 1.4.1 (it's already implemented in the betas). Though it would still mean that you have to play catch-up with the spammers.

You may also want to review the thread Bots that register and login - I assume you are being hit by the same bunch of spammers.

bye, Dirk
