How can I disable registrations?
« on: September 07, 2019, 10:33:13 pm »
I need to make my forum PRIVATE, in other words only ADMIN can register users entering their data. After that they MAY receive a confirmation/activation email.

My board has 3 forums, One can be seen by ALL registered members, The other two depends on GROUP MEMBERSHIP. That is how I configured the forum.

In the setings I DISABLED registration with social accounts. I think there was a setting for disabling registrations but that is NOT working. I just registered to my forum with another account. First I was surprised that the Registration link was present. I thought maybe it would give a message at the end but WRONG! not only was I able to register, with my new credentials that did not belong to any of the two member groups (just default), I was able to VIEW and EXPLORE ALL the subforums of my site even though the new user had not been assigned to the special member groups.

This is my forum:
    Board #1: General Discussion
    Board #2: Owners
    Board #3: Administering Commitee

All users registered by ADMIN should be able to participate in Board #1 as they belong to the general/default permissions.
Users that have been assigned to the Owners member group, should have access to Board #1 and #2.
Users that have been assigned to Administering Commitee should have access to Board #1 and #3 and possibly #2 if they are also members of the Owners member group.

That is how I configured the forum. Yet, with the new user (anyone from internet) that has default permissions, I was able to apparently get permissions of ALL member groups!
