    I saw this on another site, and wanted to know how to do it.

    in the top of the forums, there is a little "welcome" message - that says like, welcome to my site, bla bla bla - how do i set that up?

    here is the example:

    The guest welcome message:
    If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above. You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below.
    is default in each vBulletin version 3.x

    Once you are logged in you do not see it. log out of your own forum and it should be there.

      Can I make it so that it's always there and I can change the text?

        Yes, you can do that. To do so, open the FORUMHOME template and find & Delete this code:
        HTML Code:
        <if condition="$show['guest']">
        <!-- guest welcome message -->
        Now find & delete this code:
        HTML Code:
         <!-- / guest welcome message -->
        And save the template.

        It will now show to all the members. You can modify the phrase at any time through the phrase manager. I think its the first_visit_message phrase.
