Can I restrict access to an existing area based on post count?

Post by mr scoops on February 10th 2012, 10:11 pm

I have some existing areas on my forum, can I restrict access to them to only people who have posted more than 50 times?
I know it can be done when starting a new area but can it be edited retro-spectively?

Hi,

Do you mean that can you disable the post count in some category of your forum ?

Thank you for your reply.. You can do that if you create a group then activate the Group auto-subscribe then set the limit post (by 50 as you said Wink ) when they reach it they will automatically added to that group. About the permission you can restrict existing areas in your forum by removing all permissions of that group... Wink

Auto-Subscribe To Groups

I provided the link to the tutorial which shows all the correct ways in order to achieve the results you want to receive. Wink
