  • What sort of users are joining? 75 in 10 minutes is pretty impressive. Are they posting anything useful?

    You could make it to where only people can signup if they have a social media account, because they do an alright job of filtering out automatic users.

    To remove the signup form, but still allow users to register via social media account, you need to find this file "registercaptcha.php" you will find that file in /public_html/applications/dashboard/views/entry

    **I would recommended that you copy the original file, in case you message it up or if you want allow users to sing up by filling out the registration form again. **

    Once you have downloaded and made a backup copy of the original file open up registercaptcha.php and remove all of the that within <ul> including <ul> until you see </ul> including </ul> should be-removed.

    Now the space where the registration from would be, you can enter any text as you wish.

    To change the title that says "Apply for Membership" (that at the top) so something like "Apply for Membership is disabled, please use one of the buttons".

    Save it and upload it.

  • Sorry for the meany edits, not used to this new editor on http://vanillaforum.org.

    Hmm. I pulled all that out, but it didn't do anything. Weird. I still got the same Apply for Membership or Login page after deleting all this:

       <ul>
          <li>
             <?php
                echo $this->Form->Label('Email', 'Email');
                echo $this->Form->TextBox('Email');
                        echo '<span id="EmailUnavailable" class="Incorrect" style="display: none;">'.T('Email Unavailable').'</span>';
             ?>
          </li>
          <li>
             <?php
                echo $this->Form->Label('Username', 'Name');
                echo $this->Form->TextBox('Name');
