Add-On Information

For XenForo 1.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.

Add-on costs $34.99 USD that includes one year of support and updates with permanent access to product versions released in license validity period. Yearly extension costs $25.00 USD

The add-on has a visible branding with a link to our website which can be removed for additional $20.00 USD payment.

Keep up the great work! Helps grab a few new members out of the blue moon! Most are moonlight scrolling, post, and then decide to register!
Guest posting + registration is a pretty complicated process behind the scenes, but this add-on handles it perfectly! Good options to let it do exactly what I wanted for my forum.
Works great and for putting up with me :D Really works! Had a few members use and had some already sign up as a result
Thank you for the feedback!
