Dashboard User Registration Settings Basic Method problem

I setup the dashboard - User Registration Settings to Basic but some prospective forum users cannot register because the registration page they see on their browser is that of "Approval - New users are reviewed and approved by an administrator (that's you!). They also see the statement "Why do you want to join".
I cannot understand why Approval registration method showed up whereas I setup Basic registration.
I need assistance to solve this abnormality.

  • look in your config.php

    and verify it says Basic

    $Configuration['Garden']['Registration']['Method'] = 'Basic'; // Options are: Basic, Captcha, Approval, Invitation

    clear the files in your cache.

    also if you are using some other caching might be creating your issue if your config.php has the Basic setting.

    Pragmatism is all I have to offer. Avoiding the sidelines and providing centerline pro-tips.
