  • Forums read by Registered Users only

    Our forums is available to all reader, unregistered and visitors as well.

    We'd like to change it that only the first post of the thread is open for all to read, all other posts in the same thread are read by Registered and Logged in Members only.

    Anyway to set this up in VB?

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at

      What you can do is replace the post/attachment(s) with some teaser text such as "You need to be logged into XYZ forums to view this post" by using conditionals in the postbit template.

      Find <!-- message, attachments, sig -->, and insert before that...
      <if condition="$post[postcount] >= 2 AND $bbuserinfo[usergroupid] == 1">
      teaser text
      <else />
      Find <if condition="$show['postedited']">, and insert before that...
