Only start post visible on closed forum

Is it possibble to make the opening post visible, but the answers are not. Would be especially nifty if this option could be choosen bij the topic starter.

No, this is not possible, or planned at the current time. It leads to Quora-like “content is hidden, you must log in to see more!” tricks, which we strongly oppose.

You can of course have categories that are not visible to users until they register, and post “teaser” topics in the regular categories, letting people know that there is more good stuff available to registered users. That’s up to you.

This won’t stop it from showing on search or when JS is disabled, but you can use this CSS hack

.anon .topic-post:not(:first-child) { display: none; }
