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.

Thanks for creating this,

I've installed it for my forum and it's working great. Most of the guests who visit my forum have never visited a forum before. This helps them out.

Duncan-

Although its a nice hack, I'm not sure at the moment if I'd use it.
However... - As a disabled veteran - I am honored that you have a site like this for veterans. I may have to do some visiting...

Its a great hack indeed...Any way we can use more conditionals with it?For example add the feature, to show a message to users that havent be posted for 10 days in the forum. I dont know how to syntax that though

Anyway, great hack

Look at the conditionals in that hack. Maybe combine the 2 hacks.

It needs to go in the overall header of the site. I'm not exactly sure how to install it with a CMPS. But if someone gives me the right directions on how to do it I will include it.
