This guide will help you set up a private area, where access is obtained , by a member reaching a certain post count.

So for example if you had a private area called photos , and you only wanted members with post counts of only 50 to enter, then this guide will show you HOWTODOIT.

Please remember to use the Editor account before making any template changes

Second you must have all ready a template you can edit.

If you have not done this please read HOWTODOIT


To Enable this you must have done the following things.

    1. Set an area to private
    2. Set Up A Usergroup
    3. Allow A user group access to this area (You do not need to make them mods)
    4. Set the filter Portal To your required settings
    5. Set a new action in the action portal


If you have already set up a private area then skip to number 2.

1. Setting an area to private.

1. Goto admin panel --- 1. Forums --- Permissions --

Now using the drop box , find the required area , as shown below.



By clicking  on Advanced settings.




Will display a screen like this.


Set the  READ to private , If you want to keep this area totally secret , then make VIEW private as well.

Now click on submit.

2. Setting up of A Usergroup.
If you have already a usergroup that you are using then skip this stage and goto Number 3.

Goto admin panel --- 5. Groups  --- Management --

You now see a screen like this



Click on create new usergroup.

Here you can set up the usergroups name and Description, you must also give this usergroup a moderator. Note Group moderators do not have the same powers as a normal moderator.

An example of how to set up a usergroup is below, Make sure you have the group set to hidden.  


Once done click on submit.

3. Allowing The Usergroup Access To Private Area.

Goto admin panel --- 5. Groups  --- Permissions

Find your usergroup as shown below and click on Look Up Group.



Now as shown below allow access to that usergroup, for the area we just set up.



When done, click on submit.

4. Set the filter Portal To your required settings

Goto admin panel --- 3. Styles -- Portal Settings

You should now see a screen like this. Please check that you have Portal settings for ACTIONS and FILTER



If you do not see them then please contact the Support forum, Please double check before first, as all forums should have these.

4 Filter Settings

Click on FILTER , you should now see a screen like this.



(a) Change the name from FILTER to FILTER1 ( or you could change it to the name of Your Usergroup).

The example below is based on a member reaching 20 posts, before they can enter your private area.

Filter field  user_post , ( This must be kept as user_post)
Test  Equals (You may change this , but best to keep as Equals).
Value  20 ( Change this to what you require).

Once done click on Create New Portal


5 ACTIONS Settings

Goto admin panel --- 3. Styles -- Portal Settings

Click on ACTIONS.

You should now see a screen that looks like this.



Scroll down to the first free available settings. Now enter the settings you wish.
You can copy my picture above, the only thing you need to change is the name , and also the name of the usergroup in Command  1, (my usergroup being called test 1 ).

Settings.

Name   Name of this action. ( You may change this)
Enabled   Enabled ( when ready make sure this is set to Enabled).
Trigger   Any Posts  (Keep this the same)
Target Poster. (Keep This The Same)
Trigger Forums All but those in list   (enter any forum ids separated by a comma if you wish them not to count towards the post count, or leave blank for all to count.)
Trigger Member  All (leave as All) ,  
Trigger Group (leave as blank)
Filter   (here you must place the Filter  name, it must be the exact name, as we set up , in this case it was FILTER1)
Target Member  All (leave as All)
Target Group  Blank (leave as Blank)
 Filter  Blank (leave as blank).
XPROFILE field Blank (leave as Blank)
Command 1:   Join To Group (Amount) (You must make this Join To Group (Amount) )
Amount  test 1 (this is the area where you enter the name of the private area, it must be the exact name, for this guide we used test 1.    Flags   Blank (leave blank).
Command 2: this should be set to no action , and all the fields left blank.
Command 3: This should be set to No Actions, and all the fields left Blank.
First PM To Target Members, ( make sure this is set to be " To target Memebrs
First PM subject  Place your subject here for example "Congratulations you have made 50 posts". PM subject (* entries mean that a user can send the PM even if otherwise not allowed to send PMs)
First PM message  Place your message here.
Second  pm ,,, set to none and leave all fields Blank

Now scroll to the bottom of the page and click on update portal parameters.
