    Robbo first at all thank you for doing this addon and sharing it with the community. Most of the users either ignore the "Terms of Use" or "Forum Rules". This adds a extra layer to ensure they do. However from experience, I think the majority will just check and not read what the site administration wants them to to read.

    Instead (or as a feature) would it be possible to redirect them to a "Terms of Use" page, where there would be a counter which they couldn't ignore until the countdown is over (x amount of time) and when it's time the check box activates automatically? Specifying which user group will be enforced to this is another thing I would like this addon do.

    I can't put anymore time to this add-on and the system you have described seems like something that would drive users away. I would most likely not post on such a forum. This is more of a legal type of thing. It can hold up in court and you can delete/moderate without warning as it is assumed they have read the rules/terms.

    Perhaps this could be offered as a compromise...

    Consider maybe an extra box located under the reply box with a scrollable version of the rules page, so you never have to open another browser window to read them. Then the "I agree" can be located underneath?

    There are other things I could do with this. Like being able to add rules in the ACP and then show them however I don't have time. The current method is effective and will be the last update for at least a year now. Unless there are some weird bugs found.

    Robbo, if the terms are a bit to big for the screen, when I have Open this link in an overlay.. I can't scrool down on the overlay, not allowing people to read the rest of the terms specified.

    Is there an easy edit I can do on my side to make this happen since you said you can't really put more time in this mod for now?

    Nope. That is a XenForo limitation and as designed, either put the terms into a overflow: auto; or just don't use an overlay?

    This Addon is causing to me this error when creating a forum and save it; when the Addon installed but not activated. Version xenForo is 1.1.2

    What other add-ons do you have installed? Looks like the changes to the forum datawriter aren't being accepted. I can see where to get rid of this error but it would still mean the add-on wouldn't work in general. Sounds like a bad add-on not following XenForo inheritance is causing this.

    This has also been tried in a forum without any Addon installed

    I installed the addon into my xenforo, but when I activate the plugin at a forum I'm getting the following error:


    Has someone any ideas about that?

    Have you tried to enter a full URL into that field instead of "test" ?

    Yes, with the same result.

    I've tested it on my local installation with PHP 5.3, there it works, on our server we have PHP 5.4 running, so I think there are some problems with that?

    I'd love an update for PHP 5.4.

    Also, we have a debates forum where this would be awesome for. Is there a way to expand this to cover any new post?

    I would like to update this but I really have no time. It will happen eventually.

    Would be great if you can add this option in the categories! :)

    Fresh Xenforo install and I get the same problem listed above:

    • The field 'require_post_rules' was not recognised.
    • The field 'post_rules_url' was not recognised.
    • The field 'post_rules_overlay' was not recognised.
    When adding a sibling/child forum.
    Doesn't seem to do it for categories, just new/existing childs.

    Same problem here.
