How to stop visitors from viewing thumbs

We have an issue where we don't want unregistered visitors to be able to view anything unless they are registered. Right now they can click on the member's gallery link or member's album link and view all the thumbs and info.

We don't want them to view the thumbs and info and should be immediately confronted with the message that they must be registered to view the gallery.

We are sharing the membership database with Vbulletin. Registered members have no problem getting in. This is version 4.51 if not mistaken. There's no setting in the admin except 'no display of members galleries on index' but that defeats the purpose for registered members if we take that away.

Also, the way it is currently set up, people can do searches on Google for member's usernames and get links right to their gallery (thumbs only if not registered).

We need this to STOP asap. How can we make it so NO ONE can view the thumbs or pics unless they are registered?

Thanks in advance!

There is a setting in admin options that ask whether unregistered user's are allowed to view images? set this to no

You can also edit your category permissions and check off who can view images. Then basically any cat they dont have permission to view they wont see on the cat list

We've clicked that setting to no and all it does it prohibit them from viewing the larger images but they can still view the thumbs. We don't want visitors to view anything untless they are registered. This is a privacy issue that we need to fix.

In regards to the cat permissions, would that prohibit non-registred visitors from viewing anything?

Ok, I edited the category permissions to exclude anyone not registered. BUT, there's these links below the login link for 'recent posts' and if someone...even unregistered or not logged in...can click on the 'all images' link and see all the thumbs. Is there a way to switch this off or do I need to delete those links from the template?
