Thanks for the update. Now it works perfectly and is very useful in cases of restricted content.

Just a suggestion: could be included the choice of type user: registered, special, etc. Then the extension would be perfect!

Plugin does not work properly with Joomla 3. There is a conflict with the core plugin loadposition and the message is shown in all pages, not only there is a read more. I reported to the developer but I got no answer.

I've been using this plugin for over two years now, and I'm sorry I didn't come and review it sooner. It does exactly what it says, and being able to customize the "Login to read more" text and landing page has been priceless.
