=========

Info:
This product allows you to set permissions based on userís post count for:
-viewing forum (threads listing),
-viewing threads content,
-creating new threads,
-replying to threads,
-viewing attachments,
-Viewing/Posting links/images and e-mail addresses,
-sending private messages,
-sending e-mails.

This will disallow members with no permissions to view forums/threads/posts/links through normal view, printthread, search, archive*, thread preview. Note that you can set Forum/Thread Permissions for each forum/sub-forum separately. Screenshot shows additional options in Forum Manager and error messages shown to user when trying to view restricted area.

*-When you set in some forum "Minimum Post Count To View Thread Listing In This Forum" option to different value than "0" guests will not be able to see thread listing in that forum through Archive. For logged-in users this function works normally regarding user's post count.
-When you set in some forum "Minimum Post Count To View Threads Content In This Forum" option to different value than "0" guests will not be able to read threads in that forum through Archive. For logged-in users this function works normally regarding user's post count.

How it works and why it's better than vB Promotions system...
First of all it's very easy to use.

Forum is shown on forumhome but if you have no needed post count you'll see lock icon and predefined error message when try to access. When you set this via vB Promotions system forum is hidden on forumhome and you must create additional usergroup to make all this working.

When user collect needed amount of posts he will be able to access protected forum immediately. When you set this via vB Promotions system then user must wait until Promotions task is executed ... then he will be able to access protected forum. How much time user must wait it depends on settings in AdminCP/Scheduled Tasks... and if you set this to run every minute it pushes your server. If you set it to 2 or more minutes then user must wait more and more... and nobody like it.

Thanks to:

It would be nice something like this:

Let's say that a user register in the forum, after X days the user does not post any message, so that user will get excluded from X forum until he posts X new messages

Thanks for the mod





You should change this phrase:

Hide links/images in signatures if user post count is less than (0 to disable)

because 0 does not disable

Fantastic mod! I needed this earlier today and figured that vbulletin would have had a lot of these features built into vbulletin already. Another great Cybernetic Mod (I already have 4 others installed).

Great Hack Cybernetec!!

Non Registered Users Are Able To Post Links and Images on their Posts, even Able to Preview Them!! (Having That Option Restricted On The Hack To n Messages; This Option Works With Registered Users OK But Not With Non Registered Users)

Non Registered Users Are Also Able To Post New Threads, even Able to Preview Them!! (Having That Option Restricted On The Hack To n Messages; This Option Works With Registered Users OK But Not With Non Registered Users)

I Hope You Can Restrict That On Your Next Update!!

My Best Regards To You!!

Humm.. Enabling this option shows the user the path to the thumbnail, instead of the thumbnail. Is there an a href in there instead of a img src ?

I'd like this hack but in a different way. I want to restrict access to forums based on started thread count not on posting thread count. Can it be added?
