Thanks for that fast (like lightning fast!) reply.
But my expected result is that authentication mechanisms are still in place for the existing users, and only new users to the forum are prevented from Creating an account.
Looking at the element in site.config now….
Seems to me it’s an all or nothing proposition which would not meet my requirements.
I think I will poke around in the source code of Roadkill Wiki and see how the enable/disable creation of new accounts works there. That project could benefit from the authentication providers that you have setup
for Nearforums, ie. Twitter and Facebook providers.
For my own community, what I’d really like to do is achieve Single Sign On across Orchard/Nearforums/RoadkillWiki. That would be heavenly.
Thanks for a great product. I was able to follow the process for creating a custom template very quickly. Nice that you made that so easy!
Ps. Note that I posted a bug today about user account email data integrity issue.

You could turn it off by removing (or xml comment) the child nodes of the element
authorizationProviders in the Site.config file located in the folder \Config.
