  • promotions not functioning how i want

    i'm trying to use the promotions feature on my forum to allow users to start posting in a forum once they reach a certain amount of posts and have been registered for a certain amount of time, but it doesn't seem to be working properly

    the settings for this are quite confusing with all the and/or/parenthesis stuff. and it's confusing that reputation is involved even though i have it disabled altogether

    but anyway, below are my settings. i want them to have to meet a post/join date requirement before being able to post in a forum but for some reason it is promoting every user to this usergroup despite them not meeting these two requirements

    rep level: 0
    days registered: 7
    posts: 50
    promotion strategy: reputation or (posts and date) ???
    promotion type: additional
    rep comparison type: greater than or equal to ???
    move to usergroup: duplicate member usergroup that has permission to post in said forum

    That appears correct. What is the exact issue?

    Note: This is done by the Promotions Scheduled Task. You need to wait long enough for that task to run (usually once per hour on an active forum). Also Scheduled Tasks are triggered by code in the footer template, so if you have modified this template or added code to other templates it may interfere with the running of the tasks. Also if there is no activity on your forums, the task won't run.

      the problem is that it is promoting every user. like, if i go and make a new user right now in the admin cp, it'll promote them the next time the task runs, despite them not being registered for 7 days and not having 50 posts

        Please post a screen pic of your promotion settings.

            Thanks. And do you have a link to someone that was promoted but should not have been?
