Thank you for the report, it seems the updates were not included due to some issue in the build process. Checking right now.

Thank you!

The error seems to be impossible to happen using default XenForo installation and our add-on installed and should be result of some other add-on not using XenForo coding standards properly. Particularly, the error would happen if some other add-on extended the class "\XenForo_Model_Thread" and override the method "prepareThreadFetchOptions", but instead of calling the parent class and operating on the result the add-on seems to execute its own code only. If you suspect any of your add-ons to cause it please disable it in admin panel and check. The error would be there only when viewing thread list as a moderator/administrator.

Please let us know if you need our further assistance.

Thank you!

New option - Keep Guest Content, SEO fix

This version implements a new option to keep guest-posted content instead of removing it automatically. This option is useful for the boards, that get useful guest content but have high rate of users not ending up with registration and email confirmation. If the option is enabled, admins gets full control over the content posted, see it in the moderation queue in in forum/thread as a moderated post and can approve it manually instead of waiting for users to register.

New option - guest username prefix

The release implements a new option to set the username prefix for random usernames generated during guest registration. If you let the posts from unregistered users to expire and delete automatically there is no need to change this option, but if you manually approve guest posts and make them visible you may decide to change it. By default the prefix is "Guest-" so the usernames used will be "Guest-xxxxxx".

@AddonsLab ,
what I´ld really like to see would be an optional feature, where guest posts can set to be visible without registering for up to 24 hours and - if the guest doesn´t register - will be soft deleted by a cron (best: before the sitemaps get generated) and hard deleted every x-days. Is this somehow feaseable? (I know this is not recommended, but I´ld like to give it a shot to see how this could improve my forums)

Wouldn't you open yourself up to incredible amounts of spam?
Without antispam-services, most likely. But since the same services and additional add-ons applying to the registration form - which for me are blocking almost 99% - will be available in this too, I wouldn´t be to pessimistic, that the benefit outweighs the risk to attract more spammers. Just because they don´t made it through the reg-form yet. The few spammers which succesful registered first, were real humans.

The process described is completely possible to implement, however, it is considerably different from the implementation now and requires a large update in many parts of add-on's code, and therefore the implementation should be done carefully and should be well tested. This is not a feature most of the customers would be interested in, so we can't work on it with a high priority, but we will definitely consider implementing it when we get a chance.

Thank you!
