vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (70 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 798
Released: 10 Jan 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3483
Not Supported 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:

Hope you can fix it soon!

Thank you,

I see the issue, this has fixed it for me but haven't tested it much:

In the plugin called search_results_start at the very end of the plugin add the following line:


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

Find the phrase, edit it or add a "translation" and use HTML code to change it as you want...

You might change it to for example:


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

To make it red.

You can find the phrase by searching for it in Admin CP-> Languages and Phrases -> Search in Phrases.

I setup a forum like this:
Minimum post count user must have to be able to create new threads 5
Minimum post count user must have to be able to reply to threads 5

Yesterday a new user with postcount 0 posted a thread in that forum.

The only excluded usergroups are 5 and 6 which are Supermods and Admins.

How can this happen?

@Ghostt: Did you try the solutions I gave on the previous page?

Same goes for the enable whole mod option.

Fab...just what I need. I've had an influx of spammers join lately posting rubbish. This should slow them down a little.

Incorrect checking of recipients

There are a few issues with the PM limitations part of this add-on (they are trivial to circumvent), please see my post here:

due to a rash of spammers showing up recently and sending PM's to my membrs are they've met their posts count requirements I'd like to extend this mod to also include a minimum number of days that someone must be a forum member before they can send PM's.

can someone give me some guidance as to how to add this code?

thanks in advance.
