"Want to take part in these discussions?"

I just installed Vanilla. I haven't changed any settings or used any Add-ons. When I first came to this forum, the menu on the left had a little message saying "Want to take part in these discussions? ..." with a link to sign up. Mine doesn't have that. The menu is just blank. So a new user would have to find the "Sign In" link in the top right and then click "Apply for membership." That's no good. So... how do I get that nice message asking users to sign up? is my forum, if that helps answer my question.

    Any features that aren't in the core are always in the addon repository or available by someone here. A quick search of the addon repos would have gotten you what you wanted.
  • thanks for the help. sorry for not looking for an add-on first. i figured something like that would be a standard feature.

    Contrary to my other comments about how add ons shouldn't be included with Vanilla, this is the one that I feel maybe should, I can't see any forum not wanting to use it :-)

    # Aardvark Freak - any chance you'll be making a Pollverise extension for the forum? Trying to implement it onto my Vanilla install atm (just posting a simpe poll in a discussion) without any luck :(
  • blizeH: i doubt that vanilla will allow you to post javascript, so that probably won't work by default. i suppose i could make an extension that would give an exemption to javascript from i'd have to look into how to make vanilla extensions though, i'm a vanilla newb. and i also can't see any forum not wanting to have a nice welcome message for unregistered users.

    A private forum wouldn't want that message.
  • i would assume that there are many, many more public forums than private forums. so then you should make private forums turn it off. but, i guess no one would know the demographics better than you, so i'm sure you have thought this through already.

    Nah I think Mark's right, plus it's good to encourage people to visit the add-ons page anywhere incase there are some other items they'd like to install :)
