Solved Mimimum amount of words to a post?

Post by Scarywood September 6th 2012, 1:18 am

Is there a way of setting the forum so that members have to post a minimum amount of words in a post to be able to send it? We have a rule on my forum that there must be three words per post at least so to avoid spammy one worded posts. However, when new members sign up and don't read the rules they keep on breaking this rule and it's getting a bit tiring for moderators to keep up with policing it.

Is there any sort of feature on the ACP to set a minimum amount of words/characters for posts? I saw another Forumotion forum have a similar feature once but I am not sure how they set it up.

Any help is appreciated in advance!

Kind regards,
Scary'.

I don't understand? The codes provided at that link are for a toggle button for the Quick Reply?

I'm looking to see if, and where, I can set my forum so that members must post a minimum amount of words/characters to each post?

The last code is the one you need to look it. There are two different codes in that post.

Ahh I didn't see that!

However, I've tried pasting the code into my CSS twice and it didn't work. So I wrote the code myself into the CSS and it still didn't work.

If I give someone access to an admin account can someone please help? I worry that I'm doing it wrong. Razz

I was using the third code actually.

If not the CSS, where do I use the code?
