Not Supported Template Edits  

i use a small template modification in my forums, so that guests may only view the first page of a thread. otherwise they will get a (error) message
maybe someone want to use this, too


in the following,
XX is the number of posts shown in a thread
(i think default was 25)
you need to replace this 2 times in the first 2 lines according to your posts/page

postbit legacy
add to the very beginning:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and add to the end of the template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

this modification saves traffic and it should increase your registrations rate

its my first release to please be kind

Does this have an effect on the Google adsense bot's that are scanning your threads?

here i found a solution for this

in postbit_legacy replace:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

then create a customguest_no_posts phrase

thank u for looking for it, but with that code I get a message for every reply given saying "guest can only read first post" so if there are 100 replies I get 100 of those messages by each members who replied in the topic.

It would be better to get only 1 message

Why are all the quotes (") in the code in the first box coming out as " ????

I actually tried to install this with just copying the code (without looking at it too closely) and nearly sent my server into septic shock! Once I replaced all the " with normal quotes it all worked, but it's very odd it's posted that way, and that no one else has commented on it.

but other than that, I love the concept of this and it's working well on my forum.

Where in the code do I put the usergroups that I want to get this message?

I ask because I installed it but guests can see all of the topics.

I am fairly new to php and vb (yep, one of those noobe's) so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

have you replaced the XX in the first two lines of the first template edit with the number of posts shown in a page?
the !$bbuserinfo['userid'] should prevent guests from viewing the posts
