Yeah this plugin is broken…I’m getting the same problem.

Looks as though this was flagged as broken before you forked it, is it still known to be working? If so is it worth updating the OP?

Not sure. I didn’t tested it for long time.

Is this Plugin maintained? Would be very useful a Guest Gate, if @vinothkannans has some time or someone else that is familiar with the Plugin workings, I can support the costs.

If you have a budget to fix the plugin you should post in #marketplace and include your budget and time line.


Placed a #marketplace project, if anyone following this thread is interested or even @vinothkannans the original creator.

The code that resulted from the above project is available at GitHub - discoursehosting/discourse-guest-gate. I have also made a pull request to @jgujgu’s repo.

The plugin is in working condition now so it can be moved out of the broken plugin subcategory :tada:


OP is now wiki. Feel free to edit as needed. The plugin linked from the OP is still broken until your PR is moved.


Hi @michaeld

Now, I use your repo or @jgujgu repo?

Right now you need to use mine because @jgujgu has not merged the changes. If he is not going to do that (he has not visited here for >9 months) I will change the start post so it mentions my repo.



I used your Repo and it’s working.

Thank you!


Question for all those using the fixed plugin: is the plugin causing any issues with crawlers? Like blocking some of them?

I think have no any problem with crawler.

You can check via Google Webmaster Fetch tools

Reposting from Instead of loading wheel I get a modal box

I’m not sure if this is a bug, but it doesn’t seem like intended behavior…

When I load a new page in our forums, sometimes I get the header modal box as seen in the vid below.

Should we be seeing a loading spinner or something, instead?

That is a “flash of unstyled content”. It’s the inception of the guest gate popup, before it is filled with content and being hidden.

I’ve only seen this on some admin pages so far. I’ll take a look later this week.

I’ve pushed a fix.
The modal needed to have a “hidden” class.


Hi there,

I have a question about this plugin ! I have a french comunity and i would like to find where i can translate the message on the pop-up because Discourse translate it auto mod, and the translate is not good.

And i activate the “custom-gate”, a HUDGE pop-up apear with no css…

Thx a lot guys !

Is it possible to add a posibility to change the random for the gate re appearing?

Either remove it or change the random range entirely, because if you have a first appearing of 3 (for example) the random has high chance of hitting 1 and 2, which can be obnoxious to some users and generate the opposite goal.
