  • Limit Channel to user's with X amount of posts

    Is there a way to limit a channel from being posted in by registered users until they have a certain number of posts?

    In the AdminCP -
    1. Create a new usergroup. Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager.
    2. Set their permissions so they can post in the limited channel. Usergroups -> Channel Permissions.
    3. Edit the permissions for the Registered Users usergroup so they cannot post in that channel. Usergroups -> Channel Permissions.
    4. Create a Usergroup Promotion to move them from the Registered Users group to your new usergroup. Usergroups -> Promotions.
    5. Run the promotion under Scheduled Tasks. Scheduled Tasks -> Scheduled Tasks Manager.

      Interesting. Got it.

      If I choose the promotion to be an additional usergroup over primary user group, will that conflict or which permissions set will win? The Registered Users blocked permission or the Greater Than X Posts permission?

      Is it possible to submit a feature request to make something a bit easier for within the configuration? Seems very cumbersome to have to promote all users to this new group that is now across the entire forums just to limit posting permissions on one channel.

        If you set up additional usergroups, a Yes permission will override any No permission among all the usergroups.

        You can create a feature request by clicking on the Tracker link in the header. Controlling permissions by usergroups is pretty fundamental to the software though.
