No Signature links until x amount of posts?

Post by Methok » Wed May 18, 2011 7:38 am

Hi all,

Is there a MOD or can it be requested for one that will stop someone from displaying their signature until x amount of posts?

Thank you

You could use the newly registered users group for that.

In user registration settings, set the new member post limit to what ever number of posts you want.

Then in the permission user roles, edit that groups permissions for 'can use signature' to never. You might want to allow posting without approval in the forum permissions role otherwise you'll have to approve all those posts too.

If it's to stop spambots, have a look at the sticky topic at the top of the support forum and implement a good Q&A question and you'll stop them signing up in the first place.

Thank you Kevin,

Yeah it not for spam bots, more an incentive to post more.

Thank you for your suggestion.

To extend that concept further, maybe something like the Auto Groups MOD, set up with different groups having different permissions, and then as members posted more they would automatically move into another group with further permissions.

You can do this with a single template edit.
Open styles/prosilver/template/viewtopic_body.html
Find: <!-- IF postrow.SIGNATURE -->
Replace with: <!-- IF postrow.SIGNATURE and postrow.POSTER_POSTS > 15 -->
Save, upload and refresh the template.
Now users signature in viewtopic is only visible if the user has more than 15 posts.

If you want to do the same in the memberlist:
Open styles/prosilver/template/memberlist_view.html
Find: <!-- IF SIGNATURE -->
Replace with: <!-- IF SIGNATURE and POSTS > 15 -->

What the heck, lets do it with private messages too:
Open styles/prosilver/template/ucp_pm_viewmessage.html
Find: <!-- IF SIGNATURE -->
Replace with: <!-- IF SIGNATURE and AUTHOR_POSTS > 15 -->
