Oh my god, this is epic! I already feel that this should eventually become part of core :heart_eyes:

Wondering is it possible to remove the gate if someone has some degree of knowledge of CSS and js?

And any chance to be able to support applying the gate to tags as well?

Yes, this won’t completely block the content… just a bit of a nag to create an account. It does take a little digging though, there are 3-4 separate CSS rules that need to be disabled before you can see the full topic.


This is a good job!
The design is sophisticated.

I also like guest gate.


thank you, this is awesome!
