This is what we call a spam the board to get the required number of posts to access a forum hack.

It's the administrator's choice to install this, not mine.

If you have 3 forums set up. You set each forum to a minimum 1 post, your post only counts for one of the forums, as if you're paying a toll to get in. So with your one post you have access to one of the three forums, although you're going to have to post another 2 to get in to the other 2 forums. That might be your problem, you'd like it to work in the way that 1 post grants you access to all forums with a 1 post minimum. I hope that makes sence.

If you have 1 post per day, and if all forums require at least 1 post per day to view them, then you WILL be able to view them all.

Although, the problem here would be that it would be impossible to get that initial post then

The only trouble with this hack atm is that if you hit newest posts you skip the forumdisplay.php

And they can view all the new topic in there that way.

There are many other ways people could view new threads without going through the forumdisplay.php

I will not modify this hack so that it fixes all of those, because there isn't a high enough demand for this hack - if there were more people who wanted it, then I would do it. But, this is not the case at the moment, sorry.

One idea: Why not instead of letting users know they do not have enough posts, make it so that the forum is invisible until they have enough posts? This may cut down on the spam, and let users who are truly active enjoy the benefits of secret forums?

Confused by the description. If the forum is set to one post per day, then how many days would a member have to be posting at that rate to get in?

It doesn't matter how long the user has been a member for
