Alright, so this took me ages to figure out. And finally, I found a much less complex solution after all my complex hard work. So, here a few features for this version:
  • Forum installed on Root
  • You Don't Have to Make a PHP Page (Just a simple Template Edit)
  • Should work on every theme (Only tested on hackforums 1.8 though)
  • Makes for a beautiful login effect! (See Demo)

There are a couple of things that I've noticed do not work using this method:
  • The setting to Force Users to Login before being to able to view the board needs to be disabled. (It didn't work on my board with it on, (probably because I was using a separate .php page to handle it), but I haven't tested it on a board using this version of the modification. If it works, please let me know!)
Alright, so first up, a preview of what we're going to make! You can view a demo of it here. Or you can look at this screenshot:

View The Sexiness That's right, we'll be making something sexy for your board! First things first, since this is just a template edit. Go to Admin CP -> Templates & Styles -> "Your_Theme" -> Member Templates -> Member Login

Now, once there replace everything in that box, with this:

(I need few credits... so sorry)

Please register or login in order to unlock hidden content.


Next, you need to make one template. (I called mine "header_splash") (If you don't know how to do this the thread is here.) This way, you don't mess up the default board and end up with something weird!

Once you've made the "header_splash" template. Copy & Paste the following code in it:

Please register or login in order to unlock hidden content.


And, that should be it! You're done! Happy Themeing! (This is just a simple version. The one in the demo is hardcoded into a different php page, with custom templates as well as changed lines in the following files:
  • member.php
  • global.php

Below is the original Member_login Template, in case something doesn't go right. (Since I only tested it on my one theme.)
