Enjoy this fine update. :)


Guests always seen hidden links, if this addon activated. You can't exclude guests and include group ids. Non-excluded Forums are depend by the made options in vbulletins-options.


You'll find different versions in the archive. "product-Hide_Links_From_Guest_v132_36x_english.xml" is the newest one.
36x in filename means, product for vBulletin 3.6.x only, not downward-compatibly
354 in filename means, product for vBulletin 3.5.4.

This Addon works fine with the "Post Replacement" addon from Larrysw.
You need only to change the "Execution Order" from 5 to 4 in "Plugin Manager" -> Guests will not see links in posts (Hook: postbit_display_complete)

For german members of vBulletin, please click here for install. Thx :)


Have Fun

Regards, Stoebi

this is what logged in users see, the small little blue button next to the user name is creating the problem.

Hack is useless as the old Version.
On vBadvanced and any other Portal or CMS all Links are still visible.
:(

unitedpunjab 08 Aug 2006 20:49

for ppl who dont use any cms this hack is WORKS unlike all other hide hacks

C_P 08 Aug 2006 20:59

I am using it and works great so far.
Test it here:

*UPDATE*
I did find this mod to work great. However, it was descided by our staff that it is more a detrant for guests to get them to register.
I removed this mod from my site but think it was a good mod non the less.

Thank you :)

Yes. In Plug-ins you need only to deactivate the "Guests Not see links in Signature" plugin.


Will bring another enhancement. User in groups 1, 3 and 4 will not see links, too. Based on a idea
from the user JonnyF (www.vbhacks-germany.com).
Anyone interested?

Why not a simple Hide Hack which shows links after a users replies.
all other hide hacks are either too complicated or simply doesnt work.

GregF 10 Aug 2006 14:33

A usefull addition to this would be to also be able to hide email addresses in posts from guests.

Sounds like a good idea :) especially if it was done so you could also choose which forums had links hidden and which had links shown. Then you have all bases covered!
