=========

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:

Hi Cyb! I noticed that this hack doesn't work with secondary usergroups. How can I add that?

Yep, installing this hack killed my RSS feeds also.

Another strange issue is that its worked perfectly except for two instances. i had two people sign up in my forums the last two days, both spammers, both made single posts with dozens of links, which they should not be able to do until they have 10 posts.

Do you have auto parse links enabled or disabled? I have had the same thing happen but the links were not parsed (Not Clickable)


I really miss my RSS feeds.

I had to uninstall this on all my sites because it interferes with articlebot. I believe it intereferes with the default rss poster as well.

Glad to know I am not the only one experiencing the RSS issue. Maybe the developer will take a look at it.

So the limits you set in the vBoptions in admincp also affect the RSS.
Is that it?

It does not matter. Code Monkey and I have been working on this error for a few days. If you have this installed, no matter what the settings are, it will stop both the articlebot and the VB RSS automated postings in its tracks.

Once I also uninstalled it, they both started working again just fine

This is a great modification, I take nothing away from Cyb's development at all, It just needs to have the corrections made to bypass the RSS feeds and/or articlebot!

This is the same issue that arose when Amykar had her similar hack. Scripts that post or do things in the background have sessions and all the userinfo stuff turned off since it's a waste of resources and not needed for the task at hand. Therefor this mod can't really tell how many posts the poster has and will disallow it.

What would be nice is if Jelsoft would add a constant to vBulletin. Such as "IS_BOT". Then hacks could check if that is set and not perform their task of moderating the post.
