Solved A certain # of posts to get into a forum?

Post by jennmm87 on August 24th 2010, 1:58 am

Is there a way I can set a forum to like 200 posts so members have to have 200 posts to get into the forum?

You don't need to post the link to your forum.

ACP > Users and Groups > Minimum posts to join group: 200

ACP > General > Categories and Forums > Create new forum > Allow to see: 200 Posts group

What I don't really understand what you're trying to say? I'm saying I want members to have 200 posts before they can post in a certain forum.

What you posted doesn't make sense.

It makes complete sense Sad

Create a USERGROUP and make it so you need 200 POSTS to join it.

King of Sports' post does make sense, actually. He has told you exactly what you need to do to set up such a group.

After you follow the insts above you will need to manually modify your permissions to disallow those with less than 200 posts to view the forum you don't wish them to see. Likewise with allowing those with more than 200 posts to view that forum.

Yes but his instructions aren't clear to me. I did as he asked and I stopped at User & Groups cause he didn't properly instruct me as to what to do. I don't understand.

It's already clearly stated above, if you need a guide with auto-subscribe groups, read this:

Thanks and no he wasn't clear he missed a step he didn't say to go to the Group Administration which confused me.
