Hide Posts From Guests

    This is a simple template modification which will hide the post contents from guests and show them a message instead. Which you can alter to fit your needs.

    At the message template replace all the code in there with the following code:

    <xen:require css="message.css" />
    <xen:require css="bb_code.css" />
    <li id="{$messageId}" class="message{xen:if $message.isDeleted, ' deleted'}{xen:if '{$message.is_admin} OR {$message.is_moderator}', ' staff'}" data-author="{$message.username}">
        <xen:include template="message_user_info">
            <xen:map from="$message" to="$user" />
        <div class="messageInfo">
            <br /><br />
           <xen:if is="!{$visitor.user_id}">
           <p class="importantMessage">Hello there guest. Please <a href="{xen:link 'register/'}">Register</a> or <a href="{xen:link 'login/'}">login</a> to view the posts!</p>
           <xen:else />
            <xen:if is="{$message.isNew}"><span class="newIndicator"><span></span>{xen:phrase new}</span></xen:if>
            <xen:if hascontent="true">
                <ul class="messageNotices">
                        <xen:if is="{$message.isDeleted}">
                            <li class="deletedNotice">{xen:phrase this_message_has_been_removed_from_public_view}</li>
                        <xen:elseif is="{$message.isModerated}" />
                            <li class="moderatedNotice">{xen:phrase this_message_is_awaiting_moderator_approval_and_is_invisible_to_normal}</li>
            <div class="messageContent">
                <article><blockquote class="messageText ugc baseHtml">{xen:raw $message.messageHtml}</blockquote></article>
                {xen:raw $messageContentAfterTemplate}
            <xen:if is="{$visitor.content_show_signature} && {$message.signature}">
                <div class="baseHtml signature ugc"><aside>{xen:raw $message.signatureHtml}</aside></div>
            {xen:raw $messageAfterTemplate}
            <div id="likes-{$messageId}"><xen:if is="{$message.likes}"><xen:include template="likes_summary" /></xen:if></div>
    The end result can be seen at the below attached screenshot.

    Can you make it so that it only displays the first post and then the rest are 'hidden'?

    That would be best as a separate modification in my opinion.

    You are welcome :)

    Wouldn't it simply be a conditional placed on this same add-on?

    Thank you borbole. It would much better where certain bbcodes & links could be hidden from public rather the entire post.

    I'm going to try it on one of my new forums. It's been up for a couple weeks and we're getting very little traffice from SE's anyway. I've been advertising on Facebook and we've been getting a LOT of clicks (and cheap - 2 cents each) but very few people registering. We have a lot of videos and I think people are watching them and leaving. So maybe this'll be some incentive to register. Once traffic picks up a bit I'll remove it. Anyway, thanks for the template edit!
