    Set the review price to about $1000 - that ought to do it.

    This would only stop paid listings - as users can still submit, the only issue will be you'll get links in your pending list but no payments in the payment list. Though clearing them all out shouldn't be too difficult;)

    Finally a good answer :D
    But will this stop spammers that are accessing the submit file directly? You see, I have 10 hits daily on the site, but like 40 submissions... I want to disable submissions untill I am off the spammers list.

    Yea right! :rolleyes:

    The only thing that will find its way their is curious webmasters, directory haters,
    and off course spammers wanting to get their viagra, cialis, in to a directory that
    they cant ever get in let alone afford :p

    Just remove the submit file

    thx

    submit.tpl,
    but you might not probably get the visitors back as they will think the site is down but not submit disabled.
    useless i have thought before.
    anyway my method is best. :)

    Why not add a temporary java popup notice advising people you are not taking submissions for the time being?

    Thanks WallaceYeung, I will remove that file and remove the "submit here" link from the header.

    The spammers would see it too.

    Sorry should have been more specific. I would have taken away the snippet of code that allows for submission, (you can put it back when you want) by adding a popup notice telling people what your plans are you won't scare them off.
