Title: Is there a way for me to restrict a certain board on my forum?
Post by: EZWarren on March 25, 2020, 02:58:13 am
Hello all,

My question is, is there a way to restrict members from a certain board till they reach a certain post count?

If so, how please?

Yes, you can.
Do it with post based member groups.
Which are setup under Admin -> Membergroups.

Then edit the board and select which allowed groups can view the board.

Sorry I mean they can view the board but they canít access it until they reach a certain post count. Is this the same principle you just mentioned?

Sort of. The feature we have makes the board hidden till you have x amount of posts.
We do not have an option for the board to be visible but you can't see the contents inside.

Admin -> Membergroups
You need to modify the post based groups.

After that you modify the boards and set the allowed groups.
