  • Creating Users

    Looking to create an internal company forum and I'm wondering: Is there a way of disabling any option to have some random person join and only create users manually?

    In lieu of that, can I specify any custom fields that need to be filled on registration?

    Yes, public registration can be disabled.

      Two more questions:
      1. Could we instead allow public registration, but have several custom fields in the registration form?

      2. Have just created said forum, we're having difficulty assigning admin privileges beyond the initial account. Any help?

        1. Yes, you can add profile fields (text boxes, radio buttons, menu options) which are required or simply displayed at registration

        2. To get vB support on these forums you first need to be a licensed customer and register for Priority Forum Support. To do this, please go here:

        ...and enter your email address in one of the boxes. You'll need to have your customer number and password to access the page.

        If you still have problems after doing this, send an email to [email protected]. Please include your user name, the email address you registered with and your customer number so we can fix the problem.

        Once you've done the above, please post in the appropriate forum for the version you've installed or raise a ticket on the above email address.

          Working on that. I'm not the actual account holder but will be doing some admin work behind the scenes. Have sent two requests to the account holder to come over here and register.

          In the meantime, there's still only one account to which we've been able to extend admin privileges,

          Edit: Got the email that I've been added to the account. Hopefully that change doesn't take too long to register.
