Registration Stopper 1.2.0 Has Been Released!
Registration Stopper 1.2.0, the "Brother's 5th Grade Graduation" edition, has been released! This new version updates the interface of the General Configuration option to reflect the interface of this feature in phpBB3. The option is now integrated with the User Activation setting, so that you can choose activation to be Disabled/None/User/Admin, where Disabled will deactivate registrations. Everything else about the MOD is the same, however. In addition, the new version includes the new MODX Template, integration with Advanced Version Check 3, and updated Author Notes and Contact Info.
Registration Stopper 1.2.0a has now been approved by the MOD Team and is available above for download. They have alerted me to some minor issues with the MOD template that will be fixed in an upcoming repackage (1.2.0b), however there are no problems with the code itself, so you can now feel free to download knowing that the MOD team has given it a seal of approval!
About Registration Stopper
Again, this is a simple MOD that blocks registrations from your board. This MOD has been done a few times by various people, but none of those MODs are here on phpBB.com. Basically, you go into the ACP, and at the "User activation" option, choose Disabled. When this is set, the registration link is hidden, and if a user tries to go to http://www.yourdomain.com/phpBB2/profil ... e=register
they get an error message saying that registrations have been disabled. Registered users are not affected, and can still edit their profiles normally.
This MOD is a must-have for, say, a demo board, in order to keep it from getting flooded, and keeping it just for demos. If you want to have a board where only administrators can invite new users, this MOD works very well in conjunction with my ACP User Registration
The User Activation setting in the General Configuration can now be set to disabled:
When it's set to disabled, the Register link no longer shows up when logged out:
If a user tries to brute-force their way to the registration page, they get this little love note:
What about phpBB3?
The feature to disable registrations is built into phpBB3! Obviously, this MOD will only be maintained for phpBB2.
Support is ONLY offered in this thread. Do NOT contact me via any other method for support for this MOD. You can find out more about this MOD at the Fountain of Apples phpBB MODs website
Thanks, and enjoy Registration Stopper!
