Where to disable 'public registration' option

Post by Metheny » Fri Oct 18, 2019 8:57 am

Dear friends, can someone please tell me where to disable the 'public registration' option for new users.
I have been searching up and down the configuration chapter but can't find it anywhere.
Thanks in advance!
🙏😊

Hi

You can disable it at the network default config -> section "Data visible to guests" property "Possible groups for public registration", just remove all groups at the setting.

Hi Alexander,
when I do what you suggest, the entire option to register at the top right off the field disappears.
What I want, is that people's registration will be pending first, for me to approve.
I need to have control over who is entering the platform.
This is how it worked earlier, but it changed. I don't know how that happened. People simply register without me approving first.
How can I change this back?
Thanks for your help!🙏😊
Kindest regards

Hi,

At System -> User configuration -> Groups -> Select group: You can set the initial users status at the registration settings.
You can set it to disabled, this way you will need to activate the user before he can login.

Another thing is the email validation, that can be set on the default configuration, Set the email as required and also config the "Validate e-mail on" this way after submit the registration form the users will receive an email to validate the address before he can login.
