    Allow members to join a private forum after x number of posts

    I'd like to set up a private forum that you can only join after being an active member of the site. I have set up the usergroup and the private forum, but it is open to everyone to join. What settings do I need to change to only allow someone to join after they have posted 25 posts?

    Site Admin of and a local mommy group site. Both are Free groups open to moms.

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at

      I would suggest Under the forum name, add "Must have 25 posts to join this forum" or something similiar.
