In progress Can you limit thread viewing by number of Posts?

Post by Metina on June 14th 2011, 2:36 pm

I found that you can limit a members ability to start a topic till they get to certain number of posts. My members are asking if there is a way to limit viewing till folks have a certain number of posts. We have a lot of lurkers who don't contribute and much of the concern is over viewing members photos, using them and the content(we are face painters).

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Metina,

You can make a group auto subscribe after a certain number of posts.
Than make your forum settings so that only that group is able to read threads.

What section of the admin panel is that in. Will this allow me to start a forum on my forum that only members will have a access with a certain number of posts or do I have to start a group. Sorry, I am just not totally understanding what to do?

After you make a grup autosubscribe all members with a certain number of posts will be added to it. Than you can make a forum and set permisions for it to be viewed by only that grup.

Auto subscribe is done =
Admin panel >> Users and grups >> Group administraton >> Click on next to the group you want to make premisions for (or make a grup if you haven't had it first) and than you'll see auto subscribe option http://i.imm.io/6rks.png

You can test if it works (did you do it correctly) by makeing a test account.
