vB Version: 3.0.0 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 89
Released: 07 Jan 2004 Last Update: Never Downloads: 5
Not Supported  

Yes I know that there is already a a feature to stop guests from viewing threads, but then this also shows all the posts and threads counters to zero, and under Last Post it will say never (which sucks ). But, with my hack, it just asks guests to either login or register when viewing a thread and still shows all the right numbers

Instructions

So.. it makes your forum look REALLY inactive, unless you register? Which you wont, because its not even had a single post in it..

i think the idea is that the current feature shows 0 threads / posts etc, and this hack shows the correct number of threads / posts, but asks for registration when a user clicks on a thread / post.

this, imo, is better than the current way of going about things, don't know why this isn't how vb did it in the first place

i think vb sould do it this way because now guests can infact see how busy your forum is but can not view the topics what means more will become members other then just viewing all your topics has a guest.

Thankyou for the hack-- and it certainly works, but all forums become restricted unless the user is logged-in. Is there a way to make it so you can show the postcount to the restricted forums, but not restrict all the forums? (still allow anonymous access to the other forums).

Thanks
