Bypass the Home Page

BYPASS_TETHYS_HOME_PAGE = True

Enable Open Signup

Prior to version 1.3.0, any visitor to a Tethys portal could signup for an account without administrator approval or in other words account signup was open. For version 1.3.0+ the open signup capability has been disabled by default for security reasons. To enable open signup, you must modify the ENABLE_OPEN_SIGNUP setting in the settings.py script:

ENABLE_OPEN_SIGNUP = True
