Making new member post 1st in a specific sub-forum

Post by Litdaze on May 4th 2014, 5:19 pm

Hello,

This is quite simple, at least thinking about it. When someone registers in my forum, I want them to go to the "Introductions" Sub-Forum a create their 1st topic saying who they are and why they choose my forum and yada yada, before they can even post anywhere else or even visualize the rest of the forum.

Is this possible? Because I'm having a lot of people registering in my forum but not saying a single word and looking at topics and clicking links and such.

Create groups and then set the permissions for each forum.

Hi,

Create a group (example: Newbie) and set it to 0 posts and set the permissions to where they can only post in the Introductions forum, then create another group (example: Member) and set it to 1 post.

That's all I can suggest. Other than that you can just make an announcement recommending they make an introduction before they browse the forum.
