Hidden forum?

Post by Affin » Fri Aug 31, 2018 6:35 pm

Wondering if it's possible to create a secret forum for those who have been members for 6 months and who have 500 posts? How to create a secret forum I know but how do I fix other criteria?

That's a lot of posts in 6 months. Nearly 3 a day every day.

You can certainly do one or other criteria with the auto groups extension. Not sure if you can do both, have a try.
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... to_groups/

In group forum permissions, set the registered users and guest groups to no access and then set the new group you make to standard access.
No one will be able to see it unless they're in that new group.

You can work a lot, now I can choose that guests do not see the specific subforum but they can register and still look? That's where I want to put an obstacle?

I think where exactly you are looking for is in group forum permission. You can set it to only admin and moderators only able to view this "secret forum".

If the extension I linked to doesn't do what you want you'll need to request one that will.

you can create a new group for these members (6 months or 500 posts), and allow the new group to view the secret forum in the group forum permission.
