Hi, he can't sign up if you have put new users to "No."

Have you saved your changes?

Also, try this:
New Account Activation: Set to "Admin"
Approve only registers you trust Wink

Please refrain from double posting. Next time, use the edit button Wink

When he is online, simply copy/paste his IP from the admin panel

Well, did you just restore your board? If you did, then maybe it restores all your previous settings? Razz

Did you block new users or set registration activation to Admin Approval only? Then you should have nothing to worry about... Wink

No, when he is online, his IP will appear in the "Who Is Online?" section of your Admin Panel

Hi,

If you've deleted his posts, there is no way to gain his IP address except when he's online

When this person is online, simply click ACP. Scroll down on the main welcome page of the ACP and there will be a "Who is Online?" section. Take a look at the person's IP and ban Wink
