Looks great! Keep up the good work. One suggestion you may want to do is to add a break after the limited portion of the post and the register message so that it looks something like this:

<limited message>
<register message>

Another idea (which I imagine you have already thought of..) is to allow for a custom register message to be set in the admincp.

Just a thought.

Edit: Additional thoughts to anyone testing this. You will need to go into the post hide plugin and modify the url to point to your register.php file. I also added a "< br />" before the register message.

Edit: I'm noticing that posts that have quotes in them, the message and the register message with link is not displayed. Only the word "register" is displayed with no link. I tried relocating the html in the register message as follows:


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

...and everything after the '>' in the beginning href is displayed. It looks like something in the quote rendering is conflicting with this.

If I run across any other observations, I'll post them as I find them.

hth,
Jim

In the product.xml file, I've changed some to;


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

It now directs to my register page no trouble at all, nice mod.

Thanks

It does the whole thread which is superb, I also have the limited viewing system in place, set at 8 posts, but this gives me the option to now turn off the limited viewing system.

Since my last post, I've tweaked it a bit more so it looks a bit more presentable to guests.

Open up the product.xml file with a text editor and replace with the following to get the same result


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

If your forums are not in the forum directory, then just change 'forum' to the name of your forum directory.

Job done.

Edit, I think this Mod is absolutely superb, so much so that I've rated it and also nominated it for MOTM, which is something I never do, I know I've played around with the product.xml, but the concept is what makes it so good, so well done to the original coder for setting it up in the first place.

Delilahs that replacement allows what I was wanting? Sorry I haven't looked back on your forum to see.

Charlie, Have a look at my forum to see, But it works fine for me and has allowed me to open my forum right up, I've limited it to 100 characters, which is more than enough for people to see what the forum is about, if they don't register now, then they can't be that bothered.
I really do like the options this now gives me as a forum owner.
