Disable Login?

Post by Seraphic »

Hi,

I see in the ACP you can disable allow new account registration.
But can you also disable current accounts from being able to login?

To what point and purpose? Deactivating the account will have the effect of preventing that user from logging in.

You should disable your board via ACP, actually. Or you need a MOD.

The point was to disable creating new accounts and current accounts from logging in, but still allow viewing of the forum and its posts. This one forum is an archive forum, so its purpose is just for viewing old posts and moving information to a newer forum. I think if you disable your board, you can't view posts right?

Yes, users can't (never tested about admins though). AFAIR/K you need a MOD.

Set all the groups' permissions to "Read Only," that way they'll be able to log in, but they still won't be able to post anything. It'll get the job done.
