Hey - guys does any one know which lines in the inc/settings.php file control the email activation + administrator activation?



Thanks - John.
$settings['regtype'] = "verify";

It would be this line, most likely. I'd recommend editing it in the Admin CP though.

Thanks DF - well, the reason I'm asking is my hosting company techs set the file to read only because every time I changed a configuration such as the activation it would mess up the forum links to my domain name and and go for the IP address rather than the domain name and then give a 404 error.

I'm not sure if this has something to do with the way I installed the forum - rather than trying to fix whatever the problem is they just made the file read only as cheap/quick fix.

Ok - I just compared the web forum settings.php with my test bed forum - that line you suggest is:

$settings['regtype'] = "verify";

Rather than:

$settings['regtype'] = "both";

Excellent - thanks a load..

Awesome.
