Redirect Unregistered Users to Register page in X seconds
v.2.00

What does this template mod do?
Basically, this will increase registration rates by letting your guests view the forum posts, threads, etc for X amount of seconds until they get redirected to the registration page. I use this on my forum is works great! It has increased the registrations by a long shot. The key to this is that most users who join vBulletin forums cannot find the register link sometimes and often are confused. With this, they immediately get sent there and register!

How do I install this modification?
Installing is the simple part. Here we go:

simple steps into installing!

Go to admin cp>style manager>all style options>place in your header.......

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace X with how many seconds you want the unregistered to view your board.
Replace "yourforum" with your site name.

Press Save.

Next, go into your FTPs and replace your register.php with the one below.

You are all finished .

I will not be giving support to people who do not mark as installed and I do not accept help pms.

Thanks!

this will work:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.




surely this would effect googlebots on your site? and you said it was proven but I don't see any proof?

It's because the script uses the Userid of 1 rather than the Usergroup of 1...

Change the script to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Another suggestion. Give your users enough time to log in before it is redirected. Some hunt-and-peckers are going to take longer than 10 seconds.

Looks like a great idea. I'm also curious if this will affect how your forum is "spidered". Don't quite follow the relationship between Userid of 1 rather than the Usergroup of 1.

Google doesn't follow meta tags.

No.

Pretty poorly coded IMHO, if it wasn't for the input of the other people in this thread it wouldn't even work.

This will just annoy guest users more than anything.

I respect your opinion.

guys, if you give your guests enough time, you can implement this real easy. I made it wait every five minutes. It works great.

I will update a newer version soon with better coding.

The problem with that is who remains on a page for five minutes? The counter will refresh after the page changes.

a other good solution without automatic redirect is disable the search for guests and add the follow code to your header where your navbar is located


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

now they can see the searchbutton but he open the registerpage early or later they will register to be able use the searchfunktion
