    Looks good, and I'll get that question in that everyone wants to ask first.
    Will this affect the crawling of the site by bots? :)

    EDIT....I see you've now added the answer to the original description (y)

    This would good if it only worked for those people using an ad blocker. :D

    Does this apply to all threads ?
    only in certain forums ?
    only in certain threads ?
    decidable on a thread by thread basis ?

    Allowing guests to just see the first post on all threads will have big negative impacts with Google.
    It will increase registrations dramatically (even the people who will never contribute)

    Allowing guests to only see the first post on 50% threads will have big some impacts with Google.
    It will increase registrations, not as much as blocking 100% of threads, and the registrations that never really were interested in registering won't bother.

    Allowing guests to only see the first post on 0% threads will be great for Google.
    It will not improve registrations.

    I'd say the sweet spot might be to "only show the first post" on 10-15% of threads. Leave 85-90% as is.

    IMO.

    Only sad bots won't be able to index all posts, if Xenforo can now recognize bots separate from guests, why can't this add-on?

    I would like to know this also.

    e.g. guests can see all posts of all threads in forums a & b but only the first post of threads in forum C?

    Hello @AndyB I'd like to use this addon but only on certain forum. I've forum visible also to guest, other visible just to the members and I'd like to use this addon to make some forum only partially visible showing just the first post of each thread.

    Can I use this and apply only to some forum ID?

    Thanks!
