Disable Searchbox for unregistered users


#1

hey all :),

first, discourse is great!!! :sunny: :smile:
we use discourse since 6 month for a closed discussion. But now we find a problem for us. Because, unregistered users can use the search box / search api to search for users. Has anybody a idea, to deactivate the search box / search api for unregistered people?

thaaaanks a lot for feedback and help!

Why don’t you move your site to login-required, if it is closed discussion?

As you can see here http://parley.rubyrogues.com/ a login required site does not allow unregistered users to search.

hi jeff,

yes this could be a solution :). now, we have a open area for unregistered users. but if necessary, we disable that.
