This is a simple Plugin / Mod that was suggested to me by Kevin(kh99), Special thanks to him. And so I wanted to make it public so that others could use it as well.

What Does This Plugin Do?
What this Plugin does is, it stops newly registered users from Creating Blog Entries before they have a certain number of posts in the forum. Even though we used the vBulletin Q& A for Human Verification, On one of our forums we had a issue where a lot of new spammers (either bot or human) would register and would post spam blog entries, everyday. After adding this plugin that problem is gone.


To Install
  1. Create a new plugin using hook blog_post_start
  2. Use the Code below

NOTE: Remember to change the red colored "x" in the "$min_posts = x;" to a number of your liking, eg. 5 or 10. This will represent the number of posts that a user is required to have to be able to start their own blog entries.

I don't think this is working. I'm still getting spammers posting blog entries despite having zero forum posts.
