Login request is on front page of site with post voting disabled on the front page

If I disable post voting on the front page but have a requirement for users to log in to use post vote, the plugins “login to vote” message is displayed in the locations on the front page to users not logged in… despite the fact post voting is disabled on the front page.

So settings are:

Allow post voting Y

Allow unregistered users N

Use IP check N (I’ve tried both)

Show login link for visitors (Y) – intended functionality to drive registrations

Do NOT show for these types – all ticked except posts.

Voting on front page – N

Buddy press

Publish votes – Y

Hide – N

Show recent – Y
