http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=97150 - Hack for 3.5.x

What is this?
This will display an information bar across the top of the browser window that appears to be like the Information Bar that is from Windows XP SP2. When the user clicks it they will be sent to the registration page for your forums. This is not a popup.

If the user is logged in then this will not display at all. This only appears on the page for people who are not logged in.

I'm sure there is a way but I haven't looked into it. The last time I did it would work in 1 browser but not the other. I couldn't get it working the same in both. If anyone can, post the code and I'll include it.

Looks good.

Just a question before I install - does this allow you to set the usergroup for which the bar appears?

In my case, I'd prefer for the bar to appear for new registrants, prompting them to read the forum rules first before posting.

So I guess it might be a different mod, but if you could do the same thing so that all Registered Members see this popup until they click to go to the relevant link (forum rules in my case), and after that it doesn't appear again. I think something along those lines would be in even greater demand

You could probably set something up ... just change the IF statement around. Right now it looks for guests.

installed, very nice. thank you.

one question. using CMPS with it on vB3.6 and the 'home' page it just shows up as a link and not with the fancypants box around it. is there a way to get it to display on the main portal page as well? i don't mind the plain text link asking people to register but the box version that's on all the other pages does look nicer.

thanks!

You will need to adjust the style sheet and where it points to for images ... maybe point the sheet to http://www.domain.com/forums/infobar.css and then open that up and point the images to the same ... include the full url to the image.
