I gotta agree with others. Even if it's free to register you will severely limiting your prospective pool of members if you require registration before being able to view any content. That's how I found the two forums I frequent the most - web searches and lurking for a bit.....

Disabling pictures until registered is a great idea.....

I took your advise and removed the restrictions. There are still several threads that are members only for obvious reasons.

I was just curious. It looked a lot like vbulletin that's all.

(I am setting a forum for a civic group I belong to and we want it members only with no browsing for non members. However I don't want to pay a lot... I've been looking at board software for a little bit... I was just curious).

phpbb has many security issues, and always has. If you are looking for a decent, fairly secure bb, I would suggest Simple Machines. I have used them all at one point or another and after all was said and done, I coughed out the cash for vbulletin. The customer support is bar none, it is easy to mod, and there really isnt a more secure bb out there.

I've used it for years without any issues. Adding Mods can be a real pain though.

If people don't want to join then so be it, I'm not forcing anyone to do anything.
Keeps spammers, spam bots and trolls out, most places make you register.........it's not hard. Some don't, but place all sorts of ads in your way, may as well register then.
