X Topics Per Day Per Forum

Post by Kopacetic » Thu Oct 12, 2017 3:06 am

Hello.

I was wondering if there's an extension that allow admins to edit the amount of threads a user can post in a specific forum per day/week/etc. ?

If there are, thank you!

What do you mean by "threads", as phpBB does not have threads - topics or posts?

In other forum software, topics are called threads, not naming names here. Good practice to assume he means topics until told otherwise.

I'm not sure if it's tracked, but if you could get the date when a forum was created, you could make your own variables in a template event using some math, the current date, and that date.

If it's not, I'm sure there's some event that tracks when it was added, you can insert a column into the forums table tracking that date.

Sorry about that. I came from another forum software that named their discussions 'threads.' I mean topics.

I'll look into that. Thanks!

Indeed you are correct for threaded boards but phpBB isn’t threaded it’s flat hence they are topics and not threads. Look at all the phpBB files with ‘topic’ in their names, there’s no mention of ‘thread’.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.
