=========

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.

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:

I was hoping that he wouldn't wait for it to go gold before making it compatible with vb3.7. For me atleast its the last mod I currently have that I need before switching over to 3.7. All other mods I had currently working with th latest versions already.

Has anyone see if it works if you already have it installed? Instead of trying to install it after updating?

It's not working for 3.7?

Also, why is it "View Links/Images", can it be seperated for LINKS and/or images?

I agree not working in 3.7 beta 6. For some reason all member areas members who are using FF cannot use the post reply button.

OK if you already have it installed before you upgrade to any 3.7's is should work for you with no problem. I have it working for me on a very heavily modded board running 3.7 beta 6.

Does it work properly is the question.

It appears to either be missing files or having template edits that are no longer available in 3.7.

Yes its fully working and working properly to my imagement. I'm not sure why it didn't work at first, must be the cache effecting it but its working perfectly. No members have experience any problems what so ever wither in FF or IE. Only reasn I stated that is becuase someone reported having problems with FF.

If its not working for anyone you may want to go to any possibly related mod that could be effecting it. I'm just throwing out possibilities but I have a very heavily moded board with some old mods and some self made ones also basing on post count but none has cause any problems with this mod working properly. I went as far as testing usergroup exclusion as wel and everything is working properly.
