  • Require members to login

    I'd like to set my forums so that members have to login to read the posts / threads. Unregistered will need to register to view same otherwise they will see the 'Register' form.

    I did try and do this before but it ended up with guests / not logged in just seeing 0 post forums, which didn't give them any reason to join really.

    Cheers

    The way vBulletin works is when you set it so guest can't see the forums it will show a zero for total threads, and replies. And say never for the last post. Why they did things this way is beyond me, but there is a hack that will fix that at vBulletin.org.

      Edit your 'Unregistered / Not Logged In' Usergroup and set 'Can View Forum' to No.

        Won't this just give the 0 post / never result though ?
