vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (81 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 896

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

Info:

This product allows you to set permissions based on user’s 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.

Strange that? After installing this hack, the forum does not accept attachments larger than 3Mb up.

Someone had this problem?
I await news. Sincerely

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'vsa_ap_viewforum' in 'field list'

What is wrong with this new version?

My forum table shows that these columns don't exist in the forum table. Why werent they made?

I will attempt to uninstall and reinstall. Hate redoing all the setting again though

Great mod. Thank you!

A suggestion for the next release: How about the ability to restrict the creation of blog entries by post count. I have found that many of my new members, incorrectly create a blog entry when a forun post was actually required. The simple solution would be to restrict blog creation to members with more than x number of posts.

Thanks again

I would like to use this mod to reduce SPAM. Spammers register manually and then post links. I can see that this mod could be used to prevent link posting for users with less that x posts. However, what I'd like to know is how the mod identifies a link. Does it use a regex to match elements in a string or will it just spot the link BBCode?
