In progress How can I control members who join?

Post by Darlomidge on September 23rd 2011, 11:13 am

Hello, is there anyway that I can control the members who join my forum? Like asking for permission to join kind of thing? Is there an option on the control panel in order to do this?

Cheers

AP > Users and grups > Users options > Account activation > Administrator.
There you can set it so you have to activate the members wich registrated. Or you can hide your forums for newly registered and open only one where you can make them open a topic and do what you want them to do before you approve them, add them to a group that sees the forum. There are a fiew ways.

Set all the permissions for each category and forum so guests can not view them.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

To change the permissions of categories and forums, go to:

Administration Panel ==> General ==> Categories and Forums

Select the symbol that represents the permissions in the legend key for each section and you can change it there.

This does not mean that it exactly the slash symbol. It is merely using the slash as an example. Usernames are not excepted when symbols are used and should be kept using only numbers and letters.
