vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (56 votes - 4.82 average) Installs: 821

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:

Cyb,

I want to have a different error message displayed in the postbit when unregistered users are not allowed to view attachments, but once registered, can view thumbnails. Right now 'error_postcount_too_low_attachment' is being used for both cases.

I've made it as far as editing Cyb - APBOUPC - P4 (PD) to use 'error_postcount_too_low_attachment_postbit' and I've created the phrase, but I'm getting the error in the postbit that 'error_postcount_too_low_attachment_postbit' does not exist.

What am I missing?

I am requesting a feature. Anyway to make it so meta tags are only usable based on how many posts a user has?

That would be awesome. Thanks.

This products not working for me. The setup is fine and all, i even set the link/images to 10 posts but even with that guests can still spam with images/links. Example:

http://www.animecrazy.net/forums/vil...tml#post328290

Can you fix the bug? Thanks

Cyb - does the email links work in this version because it never worked in your previous version and you didn't answer anybody's questions about why it didn't prevent email addresses being posted?
