Hi, it seems wpforo is missing a very important feature that I am sure many webmasters would love to have.
I would like to lock certain forums to restrict access to users who have a certain number of topics. This allows one to create a "newbie" area for new users to prove they want to contribute instead of just leeching off of the forums content. This is especially useful for a media driven forum like mine that has a main purpose of sharing media. So for example you could create a set of forums that new users can view and post in but other forums they cannot even view, until they have 15/20/25 posts or whatever the threshold you set. They must earn entry into the wider forum.
Please please please PLEASE add this in a future update.
or if there is a way to do with the existing wpforo and I am just not seeing it for some reason please enlighten me. It seems odd that such a commonly seen feature in almost all other forum scripts is not included in this otherwise great forum solution.
I've just asked our developers about it and currently, I'm waiting for the response from them. I'll update the topic once I get some response from them.
