Hide BBCodes/Signatures From Guests/Users 1.8.3

No permission to download

This product will allow you to decide what BBCode content you wish to hide from guests/users on your site. You can also choose to hide user signatures from guests/users too. Hidden content is replaced with a link to your registration page for guests, and a simple message for restricted usergroups. In posts, this link or message is placed inside a block element so that it stands out.

Guests will see the following:


Members of restricted usergroups/users that have not replied will see the following:


You are given the option to merge the defined list of BBCodes in the product "MarkFL: Enhanced View Forum Posts". This way, you may choose to define the list in one place and have both products hide the same BBCodes.

  • Now allows usergroups to be restricted from seeing the defined list of BBCodes and signatures.

Version 1.2:

  • Posts containing the symbols "<" and/or ">" will now display correctly to those from whom BBCodes are being hidden.

Version 1.3:

  • Messages to guests/users now phrased to allow for translations.

Version 1.7:

  • Added settings to allow individual threads/posts to be ignored by product.

Version 1.8:
