Disable registrations and display a temporary page

We can turn off registrations using $enableNewRegistrations, but this removes the registration link as such. Is there a way to disable registrations keeping the registration link intact. But on clicking the Register link, it should display a custom template containing some temporary notice or so.

Sorry I didn't understand that.

If registrations are disabled, that means what it means: users won't be able to register. What kind of "notice" do you mean - does it means you still want to allow users to register, but just accepting some disclaimer before? In that case, refer to our "Disclaimer" solution...

OK I'll try to be more clear. When I disable registrations, the Registration link will be there, but when users click on the registration link, it should only display a custom page containing information that the registrations are disabled at the moment and reason if any or any temporary notice. That's all.

As always, it's possible to achieve adding an interuption to bb_plugins.php (preferrably at the top of that file, before Captcha etc.):

if($action=='register' or $action=='registernew'){
echo load_header();
echo ParseTpl(makeUp('registration_disabled'));
$totaltime=sprintf ("%01.3f", ($endtime-$starttime));
if(isset($includeFooter) and $includeFooter!='') include($includeFooter); else echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_footer'));

Then under templates/registration_disabled.html put any HTML and text regarding disabled registrations.
