=========

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:

I like this mod but as most of these kind it is based on post count and not NEW THREAD COUNT.

So if a user spams (f.i.) 15 posts he/she can download attachments but I just want to let users download after 15 NEW THREADS STARTED, get it

Anyone else a solution?

The only plugin I have at the hook is:
Cyb - Advanced Permissions Based on User's Post Count - PMs

I went ahead and disabled the hook call, the problem is gone.

Please help.

Thanks for this great hack!

Same problems here too

Once I disabled this hack the error was sorted.

It appears from my install that it will disable links or images from signatures if they don't reach the post count requirement. If you want to completely disable sigs for people without X posts and don't need the other features, you may want to try the vbseo conditional sigs mod.

Thanks for this mod, by the way! Worked like a charm for me, and I really liked the listing of who they can PM for users who are restricted to PMing staff only based on postcounts. In addition to driveby spammers, this will help us with a few folks who have signed up specifically to bother current members.

Thats what I'm wanting too.

I don't like the promotions where you have to make a whole new usergroup.

Hi,

Something wrong with my setup.
I'm using 4.2 with vB3.6.8 and I only enabled:

Enable Whole Hack: Yes
Links/Images Posting Permissions: Yes
Set post count requirements: All Forums with 5 Posts.
Disallow posting of e-mail addresses too: Yes

For url links it works , but for email links no?

What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks
nfn
