When joining a forum, is it possible to get the new member to read a post (I want them to read the user agreement after signing in the first time) in order to proceed to viewing and posting?


Mod  ;D

No built in way to do that.

Well you can't actually make people read something. The terms of agreement for an example, all you have to do is check a box and press enter. That can be avoided by making the user scroll all the way down with a scroll bar but of course, the user could just scroll down without reading.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Thank you. Although the last suggestion of a script, do you have a link you might suggest for me to learn from? And would it be available as a one time thing. Once you have "read it" the script would be deactivated?

Maybe it is possible to do what you're trying to do if I make a popup box with the text you want the user to read and make a cookie so that it only pops up once. w3schools.com is a good place to learn coding
