Is there any way to make the site private but open for registration?


(Tom Kwong) #1

I would like to keep the site private but want to allow people to sign up. Ideally, as an admin, I can approve the registration and then the user can access the site. It seems that I have to manually invite people one at a time for a private site…

Select the relevant public/private options in the setup wizard. You don’t have to manually invite people.

I have already set to private from the wizard. However, there’s no Sign Up button on the home page. Only Login button is displayed…

You probably need to disable the invite only settings.

In /admin/site_settings/category/login you need:

  • invite only - disabled
  • login required - enabled
  • must approve users - enabled
