Old usernames are already taken

Post by Wilbur on May 23rd 2012, 2:19 pm

Our members have been unable to register with the new site using their old usernames. They have not already been used by another person.

Could somebody please tell me how this had happened and how to fix it? Thanks Smile

Hello,

Try this: Go to Administration Panel => General => Forum => Security => Security Administration => Unauthorize subscriptions made with the most commonly used spam usernames. : No => then save it ! Wink

Hi, Hello

One quick thing to add. You have to activate their accounts. If you want to change the setup when they register, they activate the account themselves by going through email. Or activate by itself. To change that method

ACP >> Users & Groups >> Users options >>  New accounts activation :
Automatic activation [] User [] Admin []




Attention!
- Please provide your forum URL at all times.
- When the issue is solved, please y it as solved.
