Does anyeone know if it is possible to turn off registration on PHPbb. We are getting lots of false registrations and we would like to switch off registration for new users but allow existing users to continue to access the board.Thanks.
For a quick fix In the ACP, Disallow (NOT Ban) the username "*" (without quotes).
To help with your bot registration problem read the sticky at the top of this Forum. Consider adding the simple VIP-code MOD which you'll find mentioned there.
