Preview — 'You need to post 25 messages' error for Guests

We have no min. post limit before users can post Links.
(No need, as we do not allow Guests, and all first posts are screened.)

But, if the user is not signed-in, and types a message with a Link, and uses 'Preview', they get the 'You need to post 25 messages' error message...
(They are not signed-in as they will use the 'Sign in/Post New Topic' button.)

If they Sign In first, all is ok.

It's not a bug as well, should work that way, giving a straight warning in advance. The script couldn't know if someone is going to log in. Just could check only the current member status.

If someone sees it without being logged in, s/he could copy the message text to memory buffer, login straight from the same form without entering any text (only typing username and password), the script should bring back to the same form. Then paste the buffer contents and check Preview normally when being logged in.

Ok — I'll edit the warning message to be more informative.

Or, at least I would, if I could find it...
Any hints?

How to find where to edit this or that ;-)

(Do not search by a certain phrase which could be dynamic based on some values. Just search for some certain fragment you see on the screen, just copy/paste it in the search tool or editor.)

Everything related to the language interface is found under /lang/ folder, in your case, you should look up for this sentence in eng.php and modify it re-uploading back to the server. But please keep everything you change in a kind of Notes file. It would be very useful for you or for anyone upgrading your forum in the future, to bring back all these customized changes done.
