lockJoomla 3 front end user registration is allowed by default.

A lot of Joomla sites don't use this feature and it should be disabled if not required.

This tutorial will show you how to entirely disable the possiblility of someone (or a bot) from registering on your site (you can still add users manually in the back end).


The registration form is available at


even if there is no link to it on your site.

This can lead to unwanted spam signups.


To disable User Registration in Joomla 3 Administrator go to:

Users -> User Manager -> Options

Set "Allow User Registration" to No.
