Hide "Popular Tags" for guest visitors until they are logged in*

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.2
Hi All, new to Vanilla, but I have it working really well. Only one issue so far - I want to hide everything unless the visitor is signed up. I have managed to do this and hide everything except Popular Tags are still visible on the homepage. Any idea how I can hide these until after login?

    You can do it by editing file /plugins/Tagging/class.tagmodule.php

    Find function ToString (its at line 43)

    add a new line after line 47 and paste there following code:

    if (Gdn::Session()->UserID == 0) return '';

    We do here check if user has logged in - the condition in parentheses, and return an empty line instead of html block, if he has not.

    I know it is a dirty hack, but it works :P
