  • How to display a sub-forum only to users with 500+ posts

    Hello all,

    I need to keep my forum ( open to un-registered users and search engines alike, so everything is visible to everyone. However, I need to create a private forum for active members that exceed a pre-set number of posts, say, 500.

    Showing or hiding private forums seems to be connected to usergroups but I wouldn't want to manually monitor and add members to a secondary usergroup that has access rights to the private forum; instead, I'd like the sub-forum to simply display when the user posts their 500th message.

    Alternatively, I'd like to show the private sub-forum to users bearing a specific rank that they got by reaching the 500-post mark.

    I'm sure the answer is right there somewhere under my nose...

    Set up a new usergroup that has access to the private forum, and then use the promotions system to promote the user to that group when they get to 500 posts.
