    I am trying to locate the Welcome Message phrase for unregistered visitors.

    "Hello there guest and welcome to [forum name]. To gain full access you must Register....."

    I can't locate the phrase, and don't see a reference in PAGE_CONTAINER.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    That sounds like an add-on or template modification to me.

    Where exactly are you seeing this phrase?

    Yeah, I don't think there is a default visitor welcome message. I've never seen one.
    I did my own welcome message,

    I believe that's part of the XenFans Welcome Blocks addon. *finds link unless Brogan beats me to it*

    EDIT: It's here, though I think there is(/was?) an add-on that can be installed instead of doing the template changes.

    I am helping Smooth set up his site: http://www.smoothforum.com

    I had thought it was XenFans Welcome add-on, but he doesn't have that installed so I figured it was default XF. If it is not, then nevermind I'll take a closer look.

    Definitely a custom template/code.

    Unless he's talking about this (located in the PAGE_CONTAINER)
    Code:
    <xen:if is="!{$visitor.user_id}"><br /><br /><br />
                                                    <p class="importantMessage">Hello there guest and welcome to our forum!<br />
                                                    If you like what you see in the Guest Sections, then you should <a href="{xen:link 'register/'}"><b>Register</b></a> to gain full access <br />
                                                    to the site. We have much more to show you!<br />  Registration is free and it takes only a few moments to complete.<br />
                                                    Already a member? <a href="{xen:link 'login/'}">Login here</a> then!</p>
                                                    </xen:if>
    Just slightly changed in the version he is looking for.

    It's still custom and not part of the default code.

    That was it Decent. Yes it was a customization which I removed. I presume there is a thread in the template edit section offering that change.
