I was just thinking of a cool hack/addon. I was wondering how easy it would be to change the viewing of a topic by the number of posts you have. Take it someone with less than 100 posts can't view the topic. I am currently using the language hack for topic 11 so noone not registered can't view the posts. Is there a way to edit this code for another topic?

/* Hack - hiding all forums from not logged users */
if($forum!=0 and $user_id==0) {
if(!isset($clForums[11])) $clForums[]=11;
if(!isset($clForumsUsers[11])) $clForumsUsers[11]=array();
}
/* --Hack - hiding all threads from not logged users */

Sorry, the question is not quite clear.

Would you like to allow POSTING or VIEWING?

Some specific topic or any topic?

The hack you're referring to specifies FORUMS, not TOPICS...

Yeah thats what I meant was forums, right now I am using the above hack to stop the viewing of the forum number 11 if your not registered. I was just wondering if you could do something with the same effect but with num_posts, so if someone doesn't have over 100 posts they cannot view the forum and get the Access_Denied text like with the above hack. I think it could be a cool way to attract posting and maybe a neat way of creating a Members forum.

You could try to add: $user_num_posts<100 condition, so:

/* Hack - hiding all forums from not logged users */
if($forum!=0 and ($user_id==0 or $user_num_posts<100)) {
if(!isset($clForums[11])) $clForums[]=11;
if(!isset($clForumsUsers[11])) $clForumsUsers[11]=array();
}
/* --Hack - hiding all threads from not logged users */

Since $user_num_posts is generated after the language pack included, and this hack is applied for language pack, most probably it won't work.

Try to paste this at the top of bb_plugins.php:

/* Premium forums hack allowing access based on user_num_posts */

$premiumForums=array(9); // here define premium forums IDs
$premiumForumsPosts=100; // here define amount of postings to access

if(in_array($forum, $premiumForums) and ($user_id==0 or $user_num_posts<$premiumForumsPosts) ){
$errorMSG='You can\'t access this forum until you make at least '.$premiumForumsPosts.' postings!'; $correctErr='';
$title=$title.$errorMSG;
$metaRobots='NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW';
echo load_header(); echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_warning'));
//Loading footer
$endtime=get_microtime();
$totaltime=sprintf ("%01.3f", ($endtime-$starttime));
if(isset($includeFooter) and $includeFooter!='') include($includeFooter); else echo ParseTpl(makeUp('main_footer'));
exit;
}

/* --Premium forums hack */

sorry I used google traslator...

my question is

"Posting allowed with > num_topics"

and other forum ... "Posting allowed with > num_topics + num_posts"

for example: FORUM=19 if num_topics <50 and num_posts<50 :D

> num_posts already means they are total posts. Topics + messages.

If you mean user should have access to forum only after making certain amount of posts, then I have such solution available, but not distributing it for free ;-) Make your bid and I could sell it to you.
