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:

Yes, you can limit users with post count less than x to PM members, but allowing them to PM Staff.

Can this be done by usergroup to? For instance, I have seven usergroups that I only want to be able to send pms to admins/mods and receive only from admins/mods.

TIA

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It also allows ignore list (whitelist domains rules) and spam keyword check as well.

Would you be willing to add such features into yours?

My Feature Requests Summed Up:
- white list domains
- spam keyword check
- custom rules for link/image/email prevention (as shown above) [aka
URL Identifiers]

I've attached the original mod file.
Anyone else interested in this idea? Perhaps we can donate $10 each until the author is satisfied?

You can set which usergroups are NOT affected by the hack, and also which usergroups will be available to affected users to send PMs to.

Chadi,
I have no time to add new features to my hacks atm, as I'm very busy. Only potential major bugs will be fixed in the near future.

Thanks for the follow up. If you can implement the suggested features from the other mod I attached earlier, eventually at least - that would be great. I'll gladly donate $25 myself.

Thanks, I really needed this mod for spam reasons.

Can it eventually be expanded to include vb-blogs too?

Thanks again.

Whenever I try and alter the permissions for "All Existing Forums" in the View Links / Images section of the vB options it is taking me to mydomain.com/misc.php?do=cyb_apboupc_setall

Shouldn't it be taking me somewhere in the admincp? I am trying to update it so it requires you to globally have 1 post before you can post any links in the forum.

Thanks & Great Mod!

Same here. I had the one for 3.7 installed and thought updating would fix it but it doesnt. Any help is appreciated. All that comes up is a page full of smilies.

When I click, "For All Existing Forums", the link takes me to my smilies page. The link "myforumsdir/misc.php?do=cyb_apboupc_setall"

Uninstalling until this is resolved.
