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.

Same for me, PM restrictions didn't work in 4.1.10. Here's my fix:

Edit the plugin "VSa - APBOUPC - 35 (PI)". In the last few lines, replace $recipient with $recipient['username']

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Thanks for the Hack. its working perfectly 4.1.12.

I have minor issue. Hope someone can help me:

When we click on the image or link we are receiving this message

"To view your post count must be 1 or greater. You currenty have 0 post"

I want to add a forum along with the above message where the user can increase the post count. Where i can add it?


Kindly help

Upgraded my forum to 4.2.0 and it stopped working. Can you update it to be compatible for 4.2.0?

What's not working for me:

Unable to set post count for making a new thread in a forum sub-section.

OK, so the PM limit doesn't include exclusions either. I hope this can be solved for 4.2.0

Installed and working for what i am using it for as i just wanted to hide links,emails,attachments from unregistered members.

I just change the Standard Phrase: error_postcount_too_low_viewlinks to say To view links and images on this forum you must be a registered member.

Warning: trim() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in [path]/private.php(1271) : eval()'d code on line 19

----------
Got a reply from Vbulletin.com

A third party modification causes this problem when trying to use the 'private_insertpm_process' hook. Turn off the specific modifications and it will work again, this is not a vBulletin error.

-----------
can you address this error so it can work on VB4.2 pl 2 pl3

this is such a great mod

This error appear when user try to send PM to Staff -
while the Pm went over - The error appear when user try to PM .


Tested on this .

Valter dude,
is there a chance to hide the link in rss feed and archive. It will be really very helpful.
Thank you.
