Disable account creation

Postby jamief » Fri Feb 15, 2013 7:40 am

I can't seem to find if there is a way to turn off account creation like there is in OJS.

Anyone done this?

Thanks in advance

Hi jamief,

I also need to turn off account creation but I don't know what to do.
Did you found a way to disable this feature?

Hi all,

There isn't currently an option that can disable account creation entirely; a simple work-around would be to hide the "account" link in the navigation bar. See templates/common/navbar.tpl:

Code: Select all

<li><a href="{url page="user" op="account"}">{translate key="navigation.account"}</a></li>
Comment out or remove this line to hide the link.

Alternately, you could edit the template for that form to present a "No registrations are currently allowed" message. The template in question is templates/user/createAccount.tpl.
