How to add the footer for anonymous users like Discourse Meta?

Hey folks!

We’re trying to improve the visit to signup ratio for a community, and one of the solutions was adding a footer at the bottom of topics, prompting users to signup. I really love the one used by this community, and was wondering how to replicate it. An initial search across this forum and on Google are leading me towards adding a footer as a part of the theme, but that doesn’t seem to be the same as what is used here.

It comes out default. There is nothing you need to do to get it. It’s there already.

There are some settings in admin you can change for visit rates.

Aah strangely, I’m unable to view the footer on our community. Is there a setting that needs to be enabled by default?

You looking for settings > register.

The signup prompt won’t show up unless the user is interested in your site. There’s a bit more information about how we measure that here


Awesome, thanks for your response! I tried again based on the conditions and was able to trigger it to confirm it’s working.
