    is there an addon what allows me to set specific forum restrictions to show only the first post of a thread to guests?
    I have some forum categories what are closed for guests right now, that's bad for google, so I want at least to show the first posting. Is there any addon to do that?

    There is a google first click free mod you can use to hide content and let the spiders in.

    Isn't this frowned upon at Google? You're supposed to let spiders and visitors see the same info.

    In vbulletin i used a addon for about 3 years. You could trreat search engine spiders as users with special read permissions, so my content of hidden or closed forums appeard in all search engines. You also had an updated file with all search engine spiders, worked great.

    This is the resource I was referring to: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/first-click-free-smart-content-hiding.1132/

    What do you think? It should do what you want.

    I am looking for an Addon which only shows the "first post" of a thread to "guests".


    Underneath the "first thread post" should be the "Log-in or Sign-up" form with a text saying:
    "Please login or Sign up to see the full content of this thread"

    (Addon should not contain any "Copyright information" of the Addon-Author).

    Please let me know.

    Many thanks!
