[Resolved] How do I prevent users creating blogs?

    I’ve just installed BP and have come up with an issue. I would like for people to register so that they can use the groups and forums, but I do not want them to be able to register new blogs and create blog posts. From looking at the ‘registration’ option in the settings it looks like I can either let people register and create blogs or not let them register at all, which kinda defeats the object of having BP in the first place. Are there any solutions for this?

    == t I do not want them to be able to register new blogs and create blog post ==

    @toriea You can do that. If you created a network (go multisite), you need to go to Network Admin > Dashboard, then go to Settings > Network Settings where you’ll find Registration Settings: Allow new registrations
    – Registration is disabled.
    – User accounts may be registered. <=== choose this option
    – Logged in users may register new sites.
    – Both sites and user accounts can be registered.

    @mercime Thank you for that! I have now selected that option you suggested.

    I have selected “User accounts may be registered” … however, on my register page (which contains [subscriptionform], I still see:

    SITE DETAILS
    Yes, I’d like to create a new site

    Are there other configurations to be made?

    WP 3.5.1, BP 1.6.4

    @jcollier if you’ve selected “User accounts may be registered” then you should not be seeing that in your registration form. Could be that the JS to hide blog creation when it is disabled is missing in your theme’s /registration/register.php file. What theme are you using? If you change to BP-default theme, is the issue corrected?

    Good questions!

    However, I am, indeed, using the default BP theme. I have temporarily hidden new blog creation with CSS, but the HTML is still there.

    @jcollier have you cleared browser cache? Editing out the inline style you added via Custom CSS, the blog creation form is not there in your registration form. To double-check, I don’t see the blog creation form when I view your source code. The inline style to display none will not remove the form from source view.

    Bingo. I believe it was the server-side cache of that page. Problem resolved. (And perhaps valuable to others in future. :)
