What if we want a specific board to be seen, but cannot entire as a guest?

Deprecated

I'm chuckling at your answer Kindred. I get that all the time. Doesn't work or doesn't work with XYZ site, and all I know is I have a complainer who is incomprehensible.

Anybody who knows me and I know you, I'll tell you what I'm working on lately. (PM) Other than the smaller size of the open source project it's almost a microcosm of SMF.

I sometimes want to kill new members for posts like "it doesn't work" and not giving me a test scenario that fails. I have a supermod that has filled my forum with stickies in failed attempts to tell members how to file a proper report so we can fix it. It amuses me to watch his fruitless work. I sure appreciate his efforts though, at least somebody is doing something while I'm slinging code.

I'm too busy working on the new release to handle people who can't ask a comprehensible question.

I want guests to be able to see all the boards, but when the click the board, its says they have no access to it without login. How do I do this. WHen i set permissons in the admin, when your a guest the board just doesnt appear at all to them.   I want it to be able to be seen, but disable access until they are registered.  not sure if this makes sense.

Hi,

Is there a updated version of this code for version 20.18?

Just be aware...   when many users visit a site that DISPLAYS content, but then get told "you can only see the content if you log in" -- a large number of them will immediately go somewhere else!

Unless you have absolutely unique content, I do not recommend doing this.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
