=========

Info:
This product allows you to set permissions based on user’s 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:
grog6 - plugin was inspired by his original hack for vB 3.0.x.

Post Count PLUS total time as a Member?

This Mod is really close to what I am looking for! Would it be possible in a upcoming release to have permissions based on a Post Count PLUS a length of time as a forum member?

Example: You must have 30 posts and been a Member at least 90 days before you can POST in this forum.

Would this be possible, as a option?

Hi,

"Minimum post count user must have to be able to view forum" doesn´t work for me... Users with less than the post selected there can view the special forum without problems.


I use "How To Put A Space Between Each Forum Category" in my forum:
http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=156783

Could this cause the problem?

Great hack! has saved me lots of time previously used to delete spam. Would love to make a small contribution. Please provide your paypal info.

In the mean time, I'd like guests to be able to view attachments, but only image links show up, but when they click it goes to the registration page. Kindly tell me how I can change this as I already have post count to view attachments set to 0. I just upgraded to 3.9

Cheers!

Yes will the rss issue be corrected Cyb! This is an OUTSTANDING modification and I would love to use it, but cannot until the RSS issue is corrected.

Maybe you could add a bypass to allow postings if it can be set to a user id or username that someone may have associated as their RSS poster
