Anyone know how to close user registration in phpBB2 - exactly how not a theory about removing links to the registration script please. I want to be able to set up a bulletin board for a group of users then only the admin can allow the addition of any more users, just as a security precaution. The user base is unlikely to change more than once or twice a year. There is a routine which checks to see if a user name is already in use - perhaps that could be subverted to always evaluate to true?
If the process can be turned on/off from the AMC that would be even better.
If you know of some decent BB software based on Apache/MySQL/PHP that has this functionality built in and doesn't cost a fortune I would also be interested. Thank you for your help.
