Not 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,
-adding links to signatures
-voting on polls,
-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.

How it works and why it's better than vB Promotions system?!
Forum is shown on forumhome but with "Locked" icon and if you have no needed post count you'll get "no permission" error message. 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.

I cannot update individual forums. As soon as I go to save I get this error, "The service is unavailable." As soon as I disable this addon the error goes away. I am using vb version 4.0.1.

The SQL error that I get is
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I am looking for a mod to prevent the Registered Users group from posting any links regardless of post count. Please help me determine if this will work.

I was thinking I could set the new users group to not be able to post links untill they have 9999 posts for example. But will that display a message "You cannot post links until you have 9999 posts"? That would just look mean.

Is there a better way to use this to accomplish my goal or am I better doing something else?

Forgive me if this has been addressed in your previous versions but I thought I should ask here.

Thank you

I like the link idea although that could be hard to implement. I came here to suggest restricting avatars/sigs/user title. Perhaps PMs and visitor messages? Would really cut down on spam via PMs. Recently had to ban someone who PMed everyone.

And I remember you as Cybernetic, I used almost all your mods in 3.x!

Can we upgrade from 4.4 or have we uninstall the previous one first?
because I do not want to lose the options.
Thanks Valter for taking time to update this

I have in my settings to ignore the settings for usergroups: 1,5,6,7

now I WANT usergroup 1 (not logged in, not registered) to be able to see the whole forum. (ie: i want google to be able to crawl it.) The links and images are already blocked out using a separate system.

However when i go to the site as a visitor i still cannot view any threads... any ideas?


Also as for my last post, i was able to fix the issue by disabling vbseo and setting up VSa then re-enabling vbseo

Any chance of implementing this:
Require Captcha based on post count
(user must fill out captcha field if enabled and they are under X amount of posts)
Would be a great additional way to stop robots/ forum spam
