We have our board new registrations locked to keep out spamers.

However we want new registrations.

So we ask new users for their phone number. when received we call them and verify that they are in the USA and not one of the infamous spam and hack country's.

Unfortunately many new users are lost when they see this message:

Sorry, we do not accept new registrations. Should you have any questions please contact 

Does anyone know where to find and edit this text?
This would be a simple fix or improvment

For WowBB ultra admin:
Having a phone number box and a phone number required function would allow a new register to proceed.
Than having the request sent to our board admin for approval would allow us to confirm new users prior to allowing their registration to be completed.
I feel this would be a great mod as it would allow all of us to keep the hackers and spamers off our boards.
Thanks
Dan

Hi Dan,

For either version go to admin panel/advanced tab and click the "language editor" link on the left. The resulting page is long so to save time hit ctrl/f, it should bring up a search box in about any browser. Paste part of the text you want to edit in the search box and it should take you to the variable you need to edit. Just write in there anything you want and scroll to the bottom or the top to save the changes.

Thanks Jim.

Just re-wrote the message and it accepts html code :q

Is it possible for me to write an e-mail form and place it here?

Oh where is that box that is labeled error. I will go look but if I change the title of the box from error to registering instructions will it affect other error announcements?

Thanks
Dan
