I have a username and password for my site for development purposes and now want to take the site live and remove the username and password for anonymous users. How do I do that?

    How do you mean remove username and password for anonymous users? Are you trying to get rid of the login block? stop them from registering?

  • Yes, when you go to the site everyone including anonymous users have to put in a username and password. I want to remove that block just for anonymous users.

Go to admin/structure/block and look for the user login block set Region dropdown to none. If you are using the default Drupal theme, it would be under sidebar first category


but users can still create new accounts from /user page. To disable this, go to

configuration -> people -> account settings -> registration and cancellation and set "Who can register accounts?" -> "Administrators only".

  • It is already in the Disabled section of the blocks.
