​Blacklist domains from being used for reader registration

Kevin M. Cox 8 years ago in BLOX CMS updated 8 years ago 2

I can’t find it so I assume there is no way for me to blacklist certain domains from being used to create user accounts?

If that is correct, I’d like to add it as a feature request please.

It hasn’t turned into a huge hassle for us yet, but so far today we’ve gotten three new accounts created with @dispostable.com email addresses simply to spam the comments.

Having an option to blacklist these potentially problematic domains would be nice.

Let me know what y’all think.


According to the documentation, there is supposed to be a Signup blocking option under Settings -> Users. I think that may be what you're looking for http://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/applications/settings/users/workspace/article_82e9ecbe-2bf3-11e5-8884-b3aed81dfa58.html.

Thanks Maureen, that looks like it'll do the trick. I just had to go grant myself access to that setting so I could see it.
