    Hi guys, so i need a little help, ive only just been able to purchase my XF license and finally started my new forums! How ever, i would like it so that when guests and newly registered members (0 posts) can only see one forum and have to create a discussion in that forum to unlock the rest of the board, is this possible or am i asking to much?

    i do not want it as an add on i just simply want to create the user group so the can only see the "Introduce Yourself" Forum
    i want it because it will help stop spam and is just a little added security i suppose

    Revoke the view permission for all forums other than that one and create a user group promotion for 1 post, with the promoted user group having view permissions for the other forums.

    Note though that the post count is for all posts, which includes replies.
    It's not possible to do a promotion based on thread count only.

    Thats ok, i would rather them let the community know they are there before they can go ahead and "use" the main feautures :)
    can i not make it so they cant reply to a thread but only create a thread?

    Yes, you can revoke that permission (Post replies) in that node only.

    Great, if I revoke access to categories will it save the issue of doing the other forums also?
    when they sign up i want to make them introduce their self to the community before they can post unlock the rest of the forums

    Yes, it propagates down to the child nodes.

    now, ive created the user promotion, how can i change their permission?
    ive set the upgrade to user has to post 1 message
    but i cant find permissions anywhere, do i have to create another user group?

    ive done the following, so in user prmotion ive created "Member" and i also created a "Member" user group
    in user group promotion i have the following
    Promotion Active
    add user to group Member
    and to be promoted user must post at least 1 message (That must be a topic created?)

    but the test account is not being auto promoted for some reason and when i try and manual promote nothing neither
