Request to restrict viewing of threads X days
#1
Hi there,

I use the subscription plugin to help fund my forums.

My forums are similar to placing ads and when I visited a classifieds site it had a feature that i would love on my forums.

They had a restriction that free users could not actually see content until it was X days old unless you subscribed.

I would like a forum plugin so I could restrict my free usergroup and guests to not be able to see the thread content until it's x days old.

Do you think this is possible as a plugin?

For free user could be possible, but not for guests.
The forum would have to be saving all the IPs of all of your guests in the database and ... well you know what it could happen

Hi there, thank you so much for the reply.

Guests only need to see titles only and no content. I think I have seen a plugin that can do that. I think I was slightly unclear as guest don't need the threads revealed at X days as I want to get people to register anyway.

I'ts really aimed at free users.

The example I have seen was on a different forum software.

It was for people to give away used items to promote recycling.

The benefit was that paid members could see items posted for recycling immediately and giving them priority as a paid member to see the thread and claim the item.

Free members could automatically see the thread content 10 days later.

Ohh I get it. But for that, you just have to check the permissions for guests, and allow them to view only forums, but not the content threads.
So, go (into your AdminCP) to Forums & Posts -> Chose the forum you want -> Permissions -> (Look for) Guests -> Set Permissions
Then, just dismark "Can view threads within forum?".

You can do it of other way too. Go to Users & Groups -> Groups -> Guests -> Options -> Edit Group -> Forum and Posts
And there you'll other options, including "Can view threads within forum?".

Sorry but there is no option called "Can view threads within forum?". Or at least I can't find it. The options are:
Can view? Can post threads? Can post replies? Can post polls? Can upload attachments? All?

Make sure you follow all that i say. Cuz that you're saying are the options that you can see when you go to "Forums & Posts -> Chose the forum you want -> Permissions" and you need to go to "Forums & Posts -> Chose the forum you want -> Permissions -> (Look for) Guests -> Set Permissions".
Check it out.

And also you can go to "Users & Groups -> Groups -> Guests -> Options -> Edit Group -> Forum and Posts" where you can see the same option and another more.

I created a plugin for this before.

Just use the Guests Can't View Threads from here:
