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.

What if a user has a pop-up or ad blocker turned on can they easily bypass this screen? I really want something that covers part of the screen for like 30 seconds on each page they view asking them to register.. I hate lurkers...but I understand they need to see things in order to join..

This won't be blocked by a pop-up blocker. It is just a <div> that shows at the top of the screen. Visit my site for an example.

I just get a black row at the top that hovers white with no text. Looks so goofy to me.

What section of the screen should I mouse over?

I have moved over every part of the screen (on your site) and nothing changes.

I am running FireFox on a Mac.

And before anyone says I know, Mac users are the most valuable and important demographic on the net.

Sorry, I haven't installed it, I just clicked onto your veterans forum and it wasn't working for me there.

It's working now on my 3.5.0 upgrade, I didn't make any changes to the hack when I upgraded.

Hello,

I don't like this either. I almost clicked it thinking I was seeing an error before I realized THAT was what you added. I am not trying to "trick" people into joining my site.
