Is there a way to limit the use of emoticons in a post?

Post by Diana on June 13th 2010, 2:34 am

One of my users posted near 2000 emoticons in a post.
I need to limit it.

edit: or how do you ban someone from just one subforum?

You cannot limit the # of posts.

To ban someone from just one sub forum. Create a hidden group, don't give them permissions for that subforum. Add that user to that group.

There is no way to take away the permission.
I mean I cannot create a usergroup that can't access a certain forum.
When I go to modify the permissions and want to disallow the group from the forum I have to do it so that I have to unclick the Members box meaning noone is allowed on the forum.

I just can't get my head around it.

And I was just saying that there is no way you can do it. It's impossible to disallow the group to post on the forum cause then the others cannot post there either.

If it's possible would you please explain it to me.

Just create a group for the users then but make it hidden and then great a group for the users you disable permissions for. Then remove the members view/read. It will work.
