Can you add a counter to it, so let's say we can have users to wait for x seconds before they can browse in other areas.?
Will add that option as soon as Captain Picard gives me some time off the bridge.

I don't know about others but I think there is a problem with this

I tried it today and it didn't work at all

here what I did:

I did choose a user, then entered the the thread ID like: 738 and the post ID like: 7738 then I did choose: Cannot view anything else on this board.
and specified the time like: 22 then clicked Proceed!

the first weired thing that I got is the next page that showed to me was the smilies page..

and the other thing which is the real problem is that it didn't force that user at all

I even tried with other users ans other threads and posts, I even entered the thread ID only,
and the post ID only.. I almost tried everything, but I couldn't get it to work in anyway..

did I miss something?
or do I have to set something?

any ideas?

thanks

Handy plugin, but when I "Finalize" all my options I have given and select proceed, it goes to the FAQ smiley list.. Quite odd. The person also told me it didn't worked . Can this please be fixed?
