    Is there a way to prevent Guest users from reading 'replies' of a thread?

    I was kind of hoping there would had been a simple way to just add a tag to template, but I guess it's more complicated then that huh?
    I'll post a request, thanks for responding to my message.

    From your request you wanted the guests to see the first post only and the rest not. have a look at my template modification here. Did you mean something like that?

    Guests See First Post Only

    He'll mean the same as what Mark.B uses BCForums, you can see it in this thread here (31 replies): http://www.bowlandcentral.com/forum/showthread.php?t=102187

    Quite good really, because search engines can still index the thread (first post), but helps stop guests scrapping your content onto other sites, along with maybe enticing them to join and read replies. I'm not convinced myself doing things like that helps much in getting new registrations though.

    You're both correct, it's exactly what I was looking for.
