15 Screenshots

  • Version 1.x and up
    • Plugin which allows administrators to control the display of topic replies to guest viewers, showing a custom editable message to guests.
    • Guests must register & sign-in to be able to view the replies.
    • Can be set on all or specific forums.
    • Topic exceptions can be made using a comma-separated listing of the topic IDs which will not be affected.
  • Version 2.0 and up
    • Ability to hide content in the first post in a topic, and not just replies to that topic.
    • Ability to exclude topics from being affected by the plugin.
    • Ability to exclude search engines from being treated as guests
    • Tom Iron's 'Cloak' functionality has been incorporated, now allow hiding of the following:
      •  All content
      •  Links (including/excluding mentions)
      •  Linked images (including/excluding emoticons)
      •  Attachments
      •  Code
      •  Quotes
      •  Spoilers
    • Each of the above will have their own replacement message displayed.
    • Allows the ability to merge multiple instances of the same replacement message, thus only displaying one replacement message in the event that someone has multiple items in the content.
    • The 'Cloak' functionality now uses DOM instead of Regex to locate items in the content, and is thus more reliable.
  • Version 2.1 and up
    • modified the 'Apply to forum(s)' setting functionality
      • original behaviour: admin chose which forums would be affected by the plugin ('All forums' or select forums from list - therefore inclusive)
      • new behaviour: An include or exclude option is now available. 'Include' is the default, and behaves as above. 'Exclude', when choosing, will allow an admin to select which forums won't be affected by the plugin.
      • this feature will be useful to those who have a large number of forums and want to apply the plugin to a large percentage of those forums.
        • Example: 100 forums total, but apply plugin to 97 of those. So instead of selecting the 97 forums to include, it's easier/quicker to just select the 3 forums to exclude.
    • added ability to hide content from member groups, instead of just guests.
      • Please review your replacement content to ensure that it is relevant to this new functionality. For example - the default value for this used to indicate "You must be signed in.....", which will no longer be correct if you use the member group functionality.
    • fixed issue with non-image attachments not being affected by the 'Hide attachments' functionality.
    • name change to '(NE) Hide post content'

Great and pretty straight forward plugin. The latest addition of other user groups apart from guests expands its potential greatly, particularly if you plan to monetise different areas of your forum by limiting access to some content. The also newly added selection mode between including or excluding subforums is something that IPS should be using across the board, as it's a must for sites with many subforums. Very receptive author who is attentive to users needs and incorporates solutions in his product.

What a great little app!  The only thing I could possibly think of to improve on would be to provide one message in a forum topic asking the guest to register or log in to view the rest of the thread instead of repeating the same message for every reply.  However, this does not detract from the effectiveness of this app, which is worth more than what the author humbly asks for.  Well done @Nathan Explosion!

Awesome plugin! Thank you for creating it. Hiding the content of the posts is the best strategy to make guests sign up... or leave.

This plugin does everything it promises! I had a few issues to get started and Nathan was very responsive and quick to solve them 👍  The plugin is a bargain at its current price with this level of support.

I have one suggestion which would make it more suitable for my particular needs and that's to allow hiding the reply comment everywhere, including:

  • Search results
  • Activity stream
  • User profile

It would also be great if in the topic details, instead of replacing the comments for each post, it would just show the original post and then a single block below it with the replacement text. For topics with many pages of replies, it just doesn't look great to have dozens of replies asking the user to log in.

I am considering purchasing pages now to build a documentation and there I am thinking of showing part of the page, and then hiding the rest of the content. Would be nice if a tag could be inserted in pages. after which the content is hidden.

Hello! I have installed the extension at my forum and set up to hide images and attachments for guests. So when I attach file to the post it is hidden, but if I insert the image at toolbar inside of the post, than the image is shown to guests. Could you please help me to resolve the issue?

Response from the author:

If you post in the provided support topic, then I will provide support.
