Block/Stop Error Display on Forum Registration

posts: 25 United States

When a prospective forum user registers on my forum, the registration screen displays an error regarding features that are not activated. I don't believe those features are "required" for my forum configuration (if I'm wrong, 'edumicate me' please..).

That error message can be "killed" by the viewer by clicking the "x" in the corner of its display, but I'd prefer it not be presented to the viewer at all.

I'll attempt to attach a screenshot.. it doesn't show in 'preview' .. so we'll see if it posts

How do I "make it stop"?

Found it (I think).

Disable the remarksbox in the Admin / Editing and Plugins Control Panel. This globally disables all the error, info and caution box displays in the UI. For my purposes since I'm only using basic forum features of Tiki this is acceptable.

From the screenshot, it appears that you're using a registration tracker, but haven't given Anonymous users permission to use the tracker. Adjust the permissions (or remove the registration tracker) and the errors should disappear.

I'll take a look at that... at the moment turning off the remarksbox *appears* to have (also) solved it. (Although genuine errors do appear displayed - accessing the forum while not signed in, for just one example).
I haven't stumbled across any adverse repercussions of that approach (yet), but I'm "just getting started" with configuration tweeks and testing. If it turns out ugly, you've given me something to go back and look at. Thanks muchly!
