Thanks for this mod, is important for my communty and hel to more users register to forum, thanks again!
Like any other Andy's addon this is a must have for me. I run a private forum so having the possibility to let the visitors see only the first post create curiosity to see more so that the visitor maybe will become a registered user... Fantastic work Andy.
Does exactly what it claims to do. Very useful and very straightforward to use. A per forum option would probably be useful (though it's not required by me).
Great Addon! Works perfect!!!
