Hide links from guests
Mod Version: 1.0.1, by Marv (Coder) Marv is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.0 Rating: (5 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 107
Released: 02 Nov 2005 Last Update: 02 Nov 2005 Downloads: 310
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Description:
Most guests browse the forums without becoming registered. And why should they, everything´s lying and waiting just right before their fingertips - written informations and the most important: hyperlinks.
This plugin hides any link from guests until they became registered !

If guests are browsing the forums, all they´ll see is a link like this with an alternate text "Please register first or login"

Installation:
Install the XML-file as Plugin.

Credits:
Andreas (KirbyDE) for porting the previous alpha code-modification over into a Plugin.

Notes:
In one of my meanwhile heavily hacked forums I wasn´t able to bring this Plugin to life. It seems that something messed up with the usergroup-settings.
On a fresh install I can´t report any bugs or errors.

Versions:
Tested in 3.5.0 and 3.5.1

Update:
November 02, 05 - File format corrected (Version 1.0.1)

Click "Install":
Please click the Install-Link, if you use this Plugin.

Note: Some copyrights reserved

Because of this proposal I disagree that anyone is using parts of this code to build a commercial hack upon. Everyone who wants to use parts of this code in his hack/plugin/product has to release it following the rules and terms of the General Public License (GNU) to the open source community!

Question

Hi all, I applied this plugin and it all seems to have installed ok but when I go to the site as a guest browser I can still see and click on web links in posts.

Any ideas what may be wrong? We are on 3.5.0 with the 3.5.1 patch applied.

Cheers

I just wanted to show you how this has improved my registration rates. I added welcome headers on Dec. 3, and I got about 20 more registrations a day. Yesterday, Dec. 7, I added this hack (hide links from guests) and my registrations more than doubled! I added this hack yesterday in the middle of the day, so I'm expecting a higher registration rate today

Awsome Thanks! I hate sitting there watching all these Guests roll through my forums and not register, but using my content.

*Installs*

I get about 20-30 guests a day but no registers. Let's see how this works

I tried this myself without success.

I created a global phrase called no_link and exchanged the text in the plugin with $vbphrase[no_link].
Now its showing this instead of the phrase content

How can I make a phrase out of this?
I would also like to change this. Any news on how it can be done?

My best guess is to edit the plugin in the plugin area:

return '<a href="register.php" title="Please register first or login" target="_blank">No link ?</a>';

to your choice

save and voila

Regards

If a link is not http://www.xxx.com only www.xxx.com than it is not working on my site.
