Guests Trial
« on: September 02, 2009, 03:39:49 AM »
Hello everyone, I'm new here.

I'm looking on how-to make this mod/feature.

My friend runs a fun/help site for users,
And he wants guest to register to share their ideas also and post feedback.

We want the guests to have a limited time to view all the boards,
When there time expires, They must register.

Is there anyway to accomplish this sort of modification for SMF?

Hi and welcome to SMF!

There isn't a mod for this at present, unfortunately, mainly because it's very, very easy to get around.

The nearest solution is to limit page views per day (which is an existing mod) but again it's still pretty easy to get around. Not to mention the amount of spam you can expect with guest posting.
