http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=72279 - Original hack for 3.0.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.

Same here too. I never register in a forum that has this thing. It makes me think that they underestimate my IQ

Hello, its a great hack this, thnx for sharing
One question though, could be added a feature, where it could show the same bar, to the users that havent did yet their first post?
I mean, as a 2nd ability to this hack.

Hope it can be done, thnx again

I'm sure it could ... just look for a hack that shows something for people who haven't posted and use that conditional.

You can put this conditional in as well.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

That will make it show for people who have not posted.

And we put that where? I mean, we repeat the if code at headinclude again, with this conditional or in the head instead? (or both!)

Thnx again for this help

That is untested, so I don't know if that will work or not. But I think it should.
