"Looks like you’re enjoying the discussion"


So there’s this reboot of ruby-forum.com running Discourse, in its early phase. There are a lot of people using it to access the mailing list archives, and they get the modal, which annoys people a lot. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen this modal before.

Is it configurable?

No, it’s a plugin or theme component.

Pretty sure it’s Guest Gate (Sign Up Popup Plugin) - which is marked as #plugin:broken-plugin, so there may be other issues on that site.


Thank you @jomaxro! I hope this will be fixed soon.

Doubtful, the author of that plugin hasn’t been seen since mid-2017.


I meant, it will be fixed soon on ruby-forum :slight_smile:

Setting “max_guest_topic_views” to 1 (the default) is probably causing it to instantly show for everyone.

I also think that plugin’s just plain a bad idea, so /shrug

Special inline commands

The CTA will show for anonymous visitors near the bottom of topics without blocking access to content.

Yeah, I designed that version :stuck_out_tongue:

Also designed it to not show until 24 hrs after your first visit, but people thought that wasn’t aggressive enough.
