This tutorial will show you how to change member registration settings in SMF
The first tab lets you register a new member, which we saw in the previous tutorial.
This is the default agreement that is used. You can change it as needed, depending on your forum’s policy.
Immediate Registration will activate new members immediately. Member Activation requires members to click a link in an email that is sent to them.
If you want to be able to approve new members before they can begin posting, use Member Approval. To disable registrations entirely, use Registration Disabled.
You can set the required strength for passwords here. Setting this to high is the most secure option, but can result in passwords that are hard for your members to remember.
10) Click Save.
That’s it! You now know how to change member registration settings.
