Visible Branding

For a private site where no forum content is visible to guests, the easy way to hide everything is to simply deny "View" permission to Unregistered / Unconfirmed users.

However, the end result is a little messy as guest visitors get presented by an unhelpful error message "You must be logged-in to do that" and a login form, and the page returns a 403 (Forbidden) error.

This simple addon provides an alternative approach with a cleaner and more elegant outcome.

The following UI changes are made by installing this addon:
  • a customisable message is displayed to guests below the site title
  • hides the "New posts" button for guests
  • hides the "What's new" link from the header on mobile devices for guests
