Re: Is there an Approve Registration plugin?
You cannot click a checkbox that says “turn off registration”, but you can do it indirectly through the following steps by editing your theme files. If you have the default template, please upload the changed files to a new folder off the root of /my-templates/
1) Remove the following file out of your root directory, register.php.
2) Edit your template file login-form.php and remove the following:
<p><?php printf(__('<a href="%1$s">Register</a> or log in'), bb_get_option('uri').'register.php') ?>:</p>
3) Put something like the following in register.php from your template folder:
<?php bb_get_header(); ?>
<h3 class="bbcrumb"><a href="<?php bb_option('uri'); ?>"><?php bb_option('name'); ?></a> » <?php _e('Register'); ?></h3>
<h2 id="register"><?php _e('Registration Turned Off, Sorry!'); ?></h2>
<?php bb_get_footer(); ?>
Unless I am missing something, that should do it!
