Mapovifog (Max Post Views For Guests) v1.1 - Xerotic - Dec 18, 2011

License is attached inside extras folder by using this software you agree to the terms of that license.

Plugin Name: Mapovifog (Max Post Views For Guests)
Plugin Author: Jesse Labrocca
Plugin Website: http://www.MybbCentral.com
Plugin Version: 1.1
Plugin Mybb Compatibility: 1.6x
Plugin File Edits: None
Plugin File Uploads: 2
Plugin Description: Creates a setting to stop guest viewing and display a signup/login message after a certain amount of thread pages are displayed.

Installation:

1. Upload the filea from the zip

root/inc/plugins/mapovifog.php
root/inc/languages/english/mapovifog.lang.php

2. Login to your admincp and ACTIVATE the plugin (Mapovifog) in the plugin manager.

3. Under admincp settings group "Show Thread Options" there is the setting for Mapovifog. Default is 5. Set to 0 to disable.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I do not know how this will effect search engines that are guests by default. I strongly urge you to create a spider/bot group in admincp and set the spiders to that group. You can give the spiders/bot group permissions to your liking. In admincp after you setup the spider group go to the Configuration tab and you'll see "Spiders / Bots" on the left menu. Edit each spider to be in your new group.

Screenshots available in the extras folder.

This plugin is language compatible.

Enjoy.

Question though, is this going by threads, posts, or pages? Because it's not very accurate and I can't quite figure it out. It says posts, but if I have it set to 10, it lets me view more than that, and if I have it set to 30, it goes way above that. Having it go by the exact post or thread # would be great...

It is set by thread page views.

Example:
If there is a thread with 5 pages, and your settings are set to limit guests to 5 thread views, they can read that entire thread before they are cut off.

This is why you make all spiders, and bots members, and not guests.

Admin cp > Configuration > Spiders / Bots

Yeah, but then your thread views go up like crazy.
