XF 1.2 Usergroup/Posting Question


Well-known member
Is there a way to force new members to post in a forum before they are permitted to post elsewhere on the site? I know I could manually move members from one usergroup to another after this has been done, but I was curious if there was an automatic method (like 1 post = automatic movement into another usergroup).

In fact there is: http://xenforo.com/help/user-group-promotions/

Configure the default usergroup for new members to only allow them to post in one forum. Create another usegroup for normal users with permissions to access the whole forum.

Afterwards, create an user promotion that promotes the user to the normal forum when they have posted one message. That's it.

The only way is user group promotions. This could also be accomplished via an addon.
