Tested Limited Guest Viewing with Xenforo 2.3 RC4.

Will require small update, but seems to work without major issues.

Notes
  • I didn't test with RC3 or earlier
  • RC4 is now out, which should make <=RC3 obsolete
If you find an bug/issue please post in the Discussion.
  • ErrorException: [E_WARNING] Attempt to read property "node_id" on null
  • Warning occurred on deleted threads
    • 404 page of a thread that never existed
    • 404 page of perm deleted thread
    • Return to XF to handle 404 or "Oops, error page"
  • PHP 8.x deprecation warning resolutions
  • New option added (on by default) (shown below)
    • "Allow viewing of excluded forums after guest view count reached"
  • Limited Guest Viewing will allow continued viewing of "excluded" forums even when the maximum number of views has been triggered
    • Note, if enabled, you must not "view track" for page types such as: Homepage and Thread List Pages, otherwise the visitor will be pigeon holed to the registration page when trying to navigate to "excluded" forums
    • The default installation does not "view track" on the aforementioned pages by default
