XF 1.4 View thread content permission


Active member
I would like my unregistered guests to only see the thread titles in certain forums - i.e when they click on the title, they get the sign up box.
I tried selecting "revoke" "View thread content" in the node permission, but when I do this, guests don't even see the thread titles on my homepage, making the homepage pretty bare and uninteresting.

How can I set it so guests can see all the thread titles, but don't have access to the posts within the thread without signing up?

Thanks for your help.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. This works on the forum page, but doesn't pull through onto the "Recent threads" block on the home page. Where I have revoked the View thread content, the thread titles don't show at all :(

Sorry, I didn't realise you meant recent threads list. I thought you meant you had a forum as your home page.

No it seems viewable threads (ie thread titles) whose content is not viewable doesn't show in recent threads or recent posts.
