Is there a way to disable user self-registration from the main forum page so that only the users I create can log in to the forums?

Add the following to your jforum-custom.properties file:

registration.enabled = false

Then restart / reload the jForum webapp so that the change gets picked up.

FWIW - The SystemGlobals.properties has all the defaults for the jForum properties. The comments in this file are pretty helpful in figuring out what the settings do.

And you can also set this from the Admin Console / Configurations / Enable registration of new users
