Limit Thread Views for Guests -- Motive Guests to Register
« on: April 15, 2021, 05:56:27 AM »

What does this mod do?

This mod is intended to use cookies to limit the number of times that your  guests can view threads your forum. The limit will be for a day, after which it will expire and it will be repeated again after the number of view limiti has been reached again. Individual boards can be excluded from the limit.

The whole idea behind this concept is to hopefully motivate guests to register.

What about search bots?

The search bots will not be impacted by this when it comes to spidering your site, because usually bots do not generally use cookies. However, they are not excluded from the view limit. Because doing that is against Google toss and it is considered cloacking.
