Paste the code below at the end of your language pack (/lang/eng.php or whatever):

/* Hide form from anonymous users */
if($user_id==0 and ($action=='vthread' or $action=='vtopic')) {
$roForums[]=$forum;
$l_userFormWarning='Only registered users can make new postings on our forums. Log-in first on the start page, or <a href="'.$main_url.'/'.$indexphp.'action=registernew">register</a> first.';
}
else $l_userFormWarning='';
/* --Hide form from anonymous users */

{$l_userFormWarning} is the variable to paste in main_post_form.html. It should be displayed when form won't be available.

Get rid of the post form for not logged-in users

If all users must register before posting - is it possible that the post form doesn't show up for not registered/logged-in users? Currently there's only a message "you must login/sign up before posting" - but it would be better that the posting form doesn't show up at all, I think.

Paste this snippet in bb_plugins.php and you should be done:

/* Hiding logging form from anonymous users */
if($forum!=0 and $user_id==0 and ($action=='vtopic' OR $action=='vthread')) $roForums[]=$forum;
/* --Hiding logging form from anonymous users */

My admin user id is "1", and in testing I've noticed that this

/* Hiding logging form from anonymous users */
if($forum!=0 and $user_id==0 and ($action=='vtopic' OR $action=='vthread')) $roForums[]=$forum;
/* --Hiding logging form from anonymous users */

causes the reply form to be visible only to me. Any ideas?

helmet: You as admin will always see this form. As well any registered user should see this form when he's logged in. Where's the confusion?

Have you set up any kind of closed forums?

No closed forums, the only thing I was trying to do was hide the form from users who are not logged-in using the code above, but when I created another account to test, that person shows as logged in to the system but the form is not visible to them.

The addon provided above works (and should work).

I've just tested this code and it definitely works, so I don't know where you did it wrong... maybe you have pasted it in bb_plugins2.php? It's the common mistake I've met.

Sorry to come to the party late, but I am just trying to configure this the way I want it, and the above is part of what I am looking at.

I have done these mods, and yes, they work. However, if a user that is not logged in clicks on 'search' and enters some valid text to search on, s/he will be able to read the post.

How can I make it so anybody not signed in can not see *anything* except the login fields and the 'sign up' button. It seems to me that this is what a 'closed' forum should do by default, but perhaps I am biased by my personal feature desires.
