Solved New users accepted without admin approval

Post by JulesofColorado May 9th 2018, 3:12 am

Hello.

I've read the archives about this and am hoping for some new answers. We just had someone register and gain access to our forum without admin approval. The settings are set so that new users must be approved by an admin and no admin let them in. I would like to know why this happened?
Thank you.
JulesofColorado

By the way, I just changed the settings to not allow new users.

I have no idea if they did or not. The email didn't say. This is all the email said:

Is there something I should know about settings for Topic'it?

Actually if Topic'it is allowed in your forum, users can skip the restriction. This is a known error and bug and as far as I remember, I read some time ago that the techs are aware of this. Anyway maybe someone from the staff can confirm it Wink

If you do have Topic'It activated, you have to set it where it does not override your forum's settings.

I did not know that! I have changed the settings to not allow it at all. I feel my group is safer that way. Thank you very much.
This is solved.
