What this hack does is to disable new users with 0 posts to download attachments on the board. If the users join the board and do not post, they got to wait for 1 day (or whatever days as you assign) in order to download the attachment.

It's a simple, yet effective hack to force new users to post on your site.

Good idea. However spam will go up alot. What you need is for them to post and once they get the set amount that we set, Then they go in a cue, for the staff to accept once they take a look at a few of their posts to make sure there not spam. If it looks like they are just spamming then we can decline them from downloading from the site.

However I will give this a go, and see how it goes, as I do have the advanced warning system installed, anyone who spams will soon be banned anyway lol.

Nice work

if they spam, ban them! simple as that!

for 30 days, multiply 86400 by 30 (or 3600*24*30).

This can all be done through user permissions WITHOUT a hack.

This could be done with simple usergroup promotions...

I was aware of promotion system; however, I chose to add a few line codes (well, a plugin to be exact) rather then to add/manage an extra usergroup.

In the last 3 day you have to have 3 post to be able to download. You currently have {1} in the last 3 days.
