This is just a simple hack that will show the first post to unregistered users / guests. The rest of the posts in the thread will ask them to login or register. This is a template hack. Of course you can edit your own message.

Additions / Changes / Ideas are welcome.

Interesting Raptor, I like the custom CSS and the included image. One quick question though. How will this affect search engines indexing one's site??

I would think that most of the time the OP is what's important to a search engine.

Search engines crawl as guests so they wouldn't see the responses iirc

Tagged this one for now.
Search engines crawl as guest but as a certain user agent:
http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/799/

People can imitate that, but maybe there is a way to change you mod and make a filter so the mod does not affect search engines.
I presume there are also user agent statements voor yahoo and others.

If it can be fixed that search engines still can crawl, I would be happy to use this mod.
