Only Admin Can Register for SP1.4

This ia a SP1.3.2/1.4 compatible port of the old "Only Admin Can Register" mod. All it does is to deny anyone but admins to register new accounts.

Download: only_admin_can_register_v12a_sp132_sp14.mod

Sure, however I'll wait till the final version is out before porting my mods. Otherwise I'd have to fix them for every weekly release.

Hi,

I have run the mod through BoardMod, and uploaded the affected files and checked my permissions, and the option is still not available in my Settings. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,
ajos

In case the admin center doesn't show the option, you could still add the needed setting manually to your Settings.pl:

Code
Select All
$registerbyadminonly = 1; 



Note however that if the option doesn't show in your admin center, it's very likely that other parts of the mod are missing too and that it won't work properly. In that case, double-check that you uploaded all modified files.

Hello! Great mod thanks for doing it.

I was hoping for some help. I would like to modify the message that is displayed when some one tries to register right now the message reads:

Quote:
Sorry, only the administator can register new members. Please contact him for an account.


I would really like to change HIM to the email address that people need to send the request to. And even make the address click-able to make an email. Multiple emaill addresses would be nice too.

I know its a lot to ask for but any help would be greatly appreciated!

How do I do this? I have no knowledge of code so please be gentle. Smiley

Oh and I am running 1.3.1

TIA!
Mxy

No big deal, just change this code in Register.pl:

Code
Select All
	$yymain .= "<CENTER>Sorry, only the administator can register new members. Please contact him for an account.</CENTER>"; 



Note: this occures twice, so you may want to change both.
Oh and try not to use " characters in the link, use ' or \", otherwise you might get a 500 error.

Thanks Michael!

This is what I tried

[code]$yymain .= "<CENTER>Sorry, only the administator can register new members. Please contact admin@yoursite.com for an account.</CENTER>"; [/code]

Then when I tested it out the messaage read: [quote]Sorry, only the administator can register new members. Please contact admin.com for an account.[/quote]

I am guessing that it does not like the @ sign.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for the help!

Ive just tried adding this "register" mod to my YaBB Gold SP 1.4 and all seems to be in order, ive checked the setting.pl for the:-

$registerbyadminonly = 0;  as stated on an above message and uploaded all the changes but i still do not have any new options in my preferences.

Ive also checked my cache.

Any ideas?

According to Michael's signature, he is on vacation until tomorrow.

In your admin center, under forum prefs and settings, you should have the option "Only admin is allowed to register new users". If you don't have that option, then you either did not apply the mod correctly or you did not upload all of the modified files.

As Michael stated above, you can also set this option manually by editing Settings.pl and changing...

Code
Select All
$registerbyadminonly = 0; 



to...

Code
Select All
$registerbyadminonly = 1;

Hi, I've got both the "only admin can register" and "Disallow guests from doing anything but login or register" checked.

My login page shows this message "Only registered members are allowed to access this forum." But the members cannot register and there isn't anywhere a registration option is shown.

Is there a way for me to change the above message to something that reads like "Sorry, only the administator can register new members. Please contact  XXXXX@XXXX.com for an account."

Thanks in advance for all the help.
