Limiting registration to users of one email domain.

I am getting ready to setup a forum and want to know if it is possible to allow users to register only if their email address is from a certain domain.

In other words I would like to exclude all domains, but the ones I specify. This would be the exact opposite of the way it is now.

I am just unsure of how to accomplish it. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I looked into doing this as a full blown hack, however, I do not think it will be worth going through the trouble. I do not think many people have the need for this. So I will come up with something for you that is quick and dirty.

OK, here it is quick and dirty:

In your Admin Panel Options there is an area for email banning. (Which is the opposite of what you want as stated above.) What I have done is to allow you to reverse that function to only allow those who are listed.

Here you go:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you have any trouble with the above code let me know.

BTW: I did fully test this and it worked on my test BB.
