    I'm pretty sure you can...

    Under Admin Panel -> Settings -> Options -> Facebook Options -> make sure you say yes to Enable Auto-Register
    Under Admin Panel -> Settings -> Options -> User Registration Options -> make sure you say no to Allow New User Registrations

          I suppose it's one way to kill a forum.

              Just tried it myself but it will then say that registrations are currently not allowed ?!?

                yep... that is what is does.

                you are no longer registering new users. you are now letting facebook users to connect to your site.

                  What I mean. If a new user comes along (with the registration button obviously gone) and hits the connect with FB button, it asks for the FB authentication - which is fine, but then redirects to the error that registrations aren't possible at this moment.

                  Here an example.. you can see the user's avatar from FB but it doesn't register the user

                      I did .. but it made me wonder. I "obviously" tested it with my account which happened to have the same email as the FB account, changed, tested, done .. works like a charm ...
