Hi, I just installed Askbot so that it shares the MySql db with another Django project which I wrote. This way people can login with their existing account on the main project.

However, I want to disable Askbot registration form, and just place a link to the main site's registration page instead.

Can I do this without forking and patching Askbot?

At the moment it's impossible.

Right now in "settings" -> "access control" there is only setting "allow only registered users to see content".

There could be option "disable account registration", later this can be extended to a choice field: "Access to user registration": "open/invite only/closed".

Alright thanks, I'll fork then.

Great, make a pull request later, if you don't mind.
