Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

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,
-posting Visitor messages
-viewing Albums
-creating new Albums
-posting Picture comments
-viewing Social Groups
-creating new Social Groups
-posting Group messages

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:

Valter,

I know this is an old thread, but if you have time, could you possibly add an option to prevent creating a signature based on post count.

This is a wonderful hack which I've been using for a long time, but as vBSEO Conditional Signatures hack seems not to be supported/discontinued anymore, a similar feature of your hack would be very welcome to many.

Thanks.

Anyone have any ideas on this? On install of the product I get:

A conflict was detected in the bitfields. You cannot continue with the installation of this product until this has been fixed. The conflicts found were:

Bitfield Collision: prefixrequired = credits_cantearn

This means that you are trying to install 2 modifications that use the same bitfield name. One of the modifications will need to change the names they are using.

PS It is commonly suggested that all variables in a modification are prefixed with the id of the modification so there can never be a duplicate name used, but not all authors take this effort.

You can view the bitfields in all the ./includes/xml/bitfield_XXXX.xml files.

I have no idea which one the other could be, but i do know this one produces the error. Where would I change bitfield name in this Mod?

After upgrading to vb 4.2.2 this plugin died (with showing multiple error messages).

So I decided for this one:
VSa - Advanced Permissions Based on Post Count
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...00#post2490200
At least plugin working.

Well, no kidding. Because this one is for version 3.7. The 4.x.x version you installed instead is by the same coder.
