After convertion - accept new forum rules?


Active member
Along with the conversion to xenforo (from vb3.8), we thought it would be a good idea to look at our current forum rules and possibly make some changes.

Would it be possible to force all users to read and accept the new rules before they can use the new forum?

There is no functionality such as that, it would require an add-on.

Or you could do it manually, moving members into a different group, or setting their status to anything other than valid.

Ultimately though, you still won't know if they've read the rules, I expect most people just tick the box and move on.

surely you had the same rules in the previous forum software. they agreed to them then? just take that as there agreement

Sure, they agreed to the 'old' rules, but after so many years it would now be a good moment to update them.

i would like the ability to update the rules, then force people to agree to them before being allowed to continue logging in.
even if they dont bother to actually read them, it is nice to at least be able to say 'those are the rules you agreed to'.
