As of v4.0.1, this application now provides the ability to hide content from specific groups, within the Forums/Pages/Calendar applications:

Content which can be configured to be hidden at present includes:

  • All content
  • Attachments
  • Audio
  • Code
  • Images
    • locally attached
    • remotely embedded
    • include/exclude emojis/emoticons
  • Links
    • internal links
    • internal embeds
    • external links
    • @mentions
  • Quotes
  • Spoilers
  • Video
    • locally attached
    • remotely embedded

Additional settings exist to perform the following:

  • First post in a forum topic can be allowed to display content, with replies then hiding the content
  • Granularity exists in Pages & Calendar to allow hiding of content in Records/Events and/or Comments and/or Reviews
  • Allow search engines to view hidden content (note: be aware that this is considerd 'cloaking' - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloaking)
  • Merge multiple instances of 'hidden' message (example: content contains 5 images, setting will force only 1 message to be displayed as opposed to 5)
  • Convert images to links within quotes
  • For guests, forcing display of the thumbail (if it exists) of an image instead of the full size image
    • includes ability to not show the image at all, instead presenting a login prompt to the guest

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!

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.

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

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.
