Disable Self Registration Ability

I've managed to get the module to work perfectly. However for our particular use we do not want the ability for users to self register or request their passwords via email. We simply want a nice simple way for multiple internal users to be able to add and delete user accounts.

Is there any quick and easy way to disable the self registration functions? If not any chance that will be going into a future version?

Thanks.

Hi Eli,
Find the section in your web.config that looks like this:
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="/_layouts/log-in.aspx" />
</authentication>

and change it so it looks like this:
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="/_layouts/login.aspx" />
</authentication>

delete log-in.aspx from "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS".
