  • How to set message when posting link from new users?

    I like to set the following message:
    To prevent spam to the forums, ALL new users are not permitted to post outside links in their messages. After approximately eight posts, you will be able to post outside links.

    How to do this or it is not possible with 3.8 version.

      Sorry, this is just message after e-mail is validated (confirmed by admin).

      Issue is how to prevent to post links inside new threads when they are new registered users.Example:
      After 8 posted new threads it will block them to post links...

        That is not possible. The best you can do is to setup a NOTICE (admincp > notices > add notice) which only displayed to new users and post your msg in there.

          Yes, set a notice and the " Users Post Count is Between" and set it 0 to 8, that takes care of your notice, now for the new users, create a usergroup that anyone over 8 posts will be in and give the permissions that you have for your registered usergroup, change permissions in your registered usergroup to not allow signatures...etc, now go to the promotions system and set a promotion up from the registered users group to your new one and set the post count to be greater than 7 and how many days they need to be registered before they get promoted to the new usergroup with greater account functionality
          Kind regards,
