Must have X posts to reply to threads in FID? - makpaolo - 2020-04-16

Is there a plugin for this?

For example, in order to view threads in a certain FID, you must have X amount of posts.

I'm not sure if this is built into Mybb already or if a plugin exists

Technically, you could use group promotions to do this. Here's how this would work:
  • Create a group for users who have more than X posts.
  • Add a new group promotion under "Users & Groups" to automatically promote users into this usergroup when they have enough posts.
  • Set up your specific FID to only allow replies from users in this group.

I can do a plugin for it if you need, but my rate is about $20/hour for custom plugins. Perhaps someone could do it for less or for free, but I think the group promotions system will probably be the best way to go about it for you. Smile

You could achieve this with a combination of forum permissions and user group promotions, both of which are built into the core.

Basically:

  1. Create user group like "Users with more than 10 posts"
  2. Grant only this group and staff groups permission to see the forum(s)
  3. Create a user group promotion so that after X posts the registered group is promoted to the new group

EDIT: beaten to it!

Seems pretty solid and do-able. Thanks!

The more elaborated the post the most it hurts.

To add value: Group Promotion is the non-plugin solution, but user post count is a global count. If you want to promote users based on their post count in specific forums I would suggest the Forum Promotions plugin:

I went ahead and added the plugin, however there seems to be no logs of promotions.

Oh, the plugin needs some updates. But that erro alone shouln't stop it from working.
