Add-On Information

For XenForo 2.x version of this add-on please check Here

The add-on allows guests to create threads/posts replies, and register after they have posted the content. This makes posting on your forums attractive, but handles spam message and invalid registrations automatically by periodically deleting all messages posted by guests, who did not end up registered on your site.

Admin Panel options page allows you to enable/disable posting of threads and replies. Guests see a constant message once they have posted a thread/reply asking them to register or login. If users login with an existing account, their content is automatically associated with their account and made visible. Users are redirected to their content immediately after logging-in.

After successful registration, the content is associated with the new account, but it is not activated until users confirm their email/are approved by admins. If email confirmation and user moderation are disabled, the content is activated immediately, however, still following the rules of per-forum configuration - forums, which require new thread/new post moderation, will keep the content moderated.

The fully-featured quick reply is supported for guests. They are asked to enter their name and pass Captcha test only once they try to actually post the reply. More Options button takes them to usual Reply To Thread page.

All official alternative methods of logging in/registering are supported - Facebook, Twitter, Google. Third-party connectors should work fine as well, as long as they follow the same pattern as the official ones.

The product comes with special integration with [AddonsLab] Quick Thread add-on which can be enabled in product's settings page. If enabled, the quick thread form will be hidden and replaced with the message asking to register/login once the users post their first thread.

All owners of an active license of Quick Thread add-on purchased till September 6, 2017, can apply for a free one-year license of this add-on. Owners of branding-free Quick Thread license will get the branding free add-on for free as well. Please apply for a Trial version on our website and contact us to verify your license and apply for the promotion.
