vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (70 votes - 4.87 average) Installs: 799
Released: 10 Jan 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3484
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:

Ditto that, really need to know if there will be a version compatible with version 4.x.

I would also like to know if there is an add-on that can restrict permissions based on the number of days a user has been registered.

This would be so welcome and appreciated for my 4.0 suite. The ability to manage posting links by usergroup is a real problem for me. I am tempted to give it a try even knowing it has a slim chance of working.

I wonder if you have in mind upgrading this Mod to VB4 ...
It will be useful for blocking the increasing amount of spam which will affect our boards daily

is there a chance to have the option that a user needs to have x posts in the past y days to view a forum?

for example, user a needs 3 posts in the past 30 days to view the sportforum or whatever.
even if he allready has, lets say 300, he needs 3 posts in the past 30 days or he just cant view the forum.

This plugin is great, but it invites floods. It'd be really good to have a feature, or maybe a new plugin to let users only post so many times in x seconds/ minutes.

An alternative would be an Advanced Permissions Based on Time. But I think the former would be easier.

Where can I set the number of post to see attachments?
There isn't any field for it?

Another thing is about using attachments.
Can I set some permissions to avoid user to attach before the post X posts?

How do we disable it?

Thanks.

Feature request - Assuming I haven't missed something - A log of failed attempts to PM/e-mail/whatever due to being blocked by this plugin would be useful.
