On vBulletin 3, I've seen this minor template mod on Sitepoint.com.

On the sitepoint.com forums, all bots can not see the signatures, thus the bots are not caching the signature.


How would you be able to do such customization? TIA.

Sounds like you know exactly what to do.
So, how do you use an 'if condition' to not show sigs to guests? :)

Thanks Zero Tolerance. The code that Sebastian provided worked. I made the mistake of editing the postbit and not the postbit_legacy. Editing the postbit_legacy with the Sebastian's code worked fine. :)

Yeah i saw no problems with it, wondered why it didn't work, so i added a condition onto the variable just to double check.
