Turn off registration?

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I could have sworn I saw an option to do this a while ago.. I run a closed off forum for friends and we want to turn off registrations permanently. I would like to do this without doing things like: - Automatically ban anyone who signs up. - Use the Invite System to stop people from registering without an invite code.

    You can create an extension with that:... if ( $Context->SelfUrl == 'people.php' && in_array(ForceIncomingString('PostBackAction', ''), array('ApplyForm', 'Apply')) ) { header('location:people.php'); }

    The Invite system does this nicely. The registration form forces the user to enter the invite code.

    Ahh ok so it's only available through a extension, in which case I'll just use the invite system for it ;)

    Without installing any extensions, I'm wondering which file contains the 'Apply for membership link'. Couldn't this be simply commented out/deleted. I know, a very crude & imperfect 'solution'.
  • Options
    Removing the link won't stop people from joining though, since the joining page can still be accessed.

    snowcrash: you can also go into your themes folder and copy the people_signin_form_nopostback.php file into your "vanilla" folder. Open it up and make changes to it there. Then make an extension like dinoboff suggested, and you're done.
