How can announcements be made to appear for anonymous users and disappear upon logging in?

Goal: When users first come to the forum, they should see the announcement that explains it's a special-purpose forum for community members. Once a member logs in, that announcement should no longer be presented.

Looked for such an option in Announcement Manager, Category Manager, Group Manager, User Manager, etc. Hoped to find a option to view announcements that I could apply only to anonymous users. Alternatively, an option in Announcement Manager could specify which groups should see it.* Did I overlook it?

* Added later: Announcement Manager can set which content groups (forums) can see the announcement -- but not user groups, like Anonymous or Registered, which is what's wanted.

I checked out your forum about bartops. very inpressed at the layout.
Simple solution to the anonymous viewing of a message to only create a Category that only the anonymous surfers can see.
it's a promotions issue from then forward.

For the bar-top forum I would use the gallery or the best of, to entice the log in to post.

There's a new Announcement manager in FUD 3.0.5, and it works quite well. Just waiting for the final release to use it.
As for a gallery or a best-of showcasing bast bartops, it would be awesome... Could be something useful to ask for to the devs.. Smile
Thanks for visiting my forum, anyway !

Integrating a gallery or anything else should be as simple as updating the forum's template files.
