Hi,

Is it possible that after registration, we can redirect users to introduction forum and require them to create a thread (introducing themselves to the community) before use any other categories and forums?

Thanks

Remove the posting permissions for the Registered user group for all forums other than the introduction forum.

Remove the post replies permission for the introduction forum.

Create a user group promotion to a new user group which has all posting permissions in all forums after 1 message.

Okey, but how do I redirect and tell my new register users that they MUST post in introduction forum before being able to post anywhere else?

Send them a new member message with details or use announcements.

admin.php?options/groups/usersAndRegistration/

Make the other forums not visible to them so they can only see that forum, and/or use a notice.
