Is it possible to restrict the creation of clubs to members of certain user groups or to turn it off entirely?

Yep, just page permissions on CMS\cms_groups using the Permission Tree Editor.

As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

I am not finding this. In the Permissions Tree Editor the closest I am finding is "Zone: Content Management > Module: cms ocf groups" but the only permission option that is giving me is view access.

I have tried to find something in the other branches of the tree but have not been successful.

The main branches that my tree shows are:
Zone: Welcome
Zone: Admin Zone
Zone: Site
Zone: Collaboration Zone
Zone: Content Management
Zone: Forums
Zone: Personal Zone

Any clarification you can provide would be appreciated.

You turn off permission for people to view (access) the content management module to stop them using the functionality.

Okay. I think I got it now. (Being a management zone, view gives the capability.)
Thanks Chris.

Piece by piece I am geting the idiosynchracies of how ocPortal is put together and where things are and how to manage it. (At least I think I am.)

I appreciate what you have put together with ocPortal.

I came across ocPortal on January 31st and here, just 3 weeks later, on February 21st I think I have worked through all of the settings to the point of having a workable site with all of my key pieces. (Except the affiliate feature which I will try to address through the referral link and points system.)

As I use it and become more familiar with it I look forward to contributing in various ways in the future.
Thanks.
