  • Can I only limit attachment downloads?

    Hello:

    Im planning on buying VBulletin, but I have a small question. I've been reading the user manual and I really love the subscriptions module the forum has because its exactly what we need, but here comes the question.

    I want to have one forum where everybody can enter a see the topics, but only paying members are able to download the attachments, is this possible? Or do I have to completely close the forum for no paying members?


    Thanks

    You can limit downloading attachments as a Usergroup thing and then setup that Usergroup as a group that people pay to get into.

      Hi, I use vBuletin version 3.5.0 and users can donload attachments for free but some users use programs to download the whole site, how to stop them doing that?
      Thanks

        vBulletin 3.5.0 has bugs as well as security flaws. I'd upgrade to at least 3.5.8.

            The only thing you could do is some kind of Apache directive that if X number of downloads happen, to lock that user out. This is an advanced topic you should try vBulletin.org.
