[RIKE] Require X Posts to create new Thread

    Postcount For Threads is a simple modification written for XenForo, enabling you to require your forum members to have a set number of posts before being allowed to post new threads in specific forums.

    The main goal for this is to help reduce spam. For example if you had a 'show and tell' forum, which allowed members to post their website URL's for review, the chances are you've been hit by people who register and post just to get a link back.

    Whilst this doesn't completely stop that, it serves as a way to make spammers work harder!

    FEATURES
    • Complete settings via XenForo AdminCP Options.
    • Ability to set an unlimited number of forums to be covered by this mod.
    • Custom HTML error message, with templated postcount and posts required.
    • Set the number of posts you wish to make your members have.

    Please note that this is a BETA release and works on XenForo 1.0.0 RC2.

    Can't you make a group based on number of posts? Then give that group permission to post, and registered user's revoked ability to post?

    It's the same effect right?

    Kind of - its a bit of a messy/complicated way of doing it though (IMO of course). The main benefit here is that you aren't presenting, what could be a new and inexperienced user with a standard non-descriptive error. You can give them a full blown HTML based page explaining why they cant create that thread.

    Great addon!!!!

    Just a tip for future releases, you can add an option maybe for Premium Members section, so when normal members are trying to browse that forum they will just get a customized error to upgrade their membership ! :D

    I personally think it's a cleaner way of doing it, but to each it's own.

    Is there going to be any upgraded version of this add-on for the stable release of XenForo? :)

    You should be ok to use it on the latest release as it doesnt contain anything that alters the way XF works - a fairly basic codebase.

    This doesn't seem to be working on XF 1.01 :(

    Rick does this work on the 1.0.4 version of Xenforo? I'm very interested in it but read the last Darfuria msg...

    I've unfortunately not got a copy of XF setup at the moment. I've got some free time next week so will see about getting this updated.
