Is there a way to deny access to other members' photos if you have not uploaded any yourself?

Let say that i want all members to upload min. 2 photos, before they can access/view other members photos.
Is there a way to do this?

No sorry there is nothing in the program that does something like that.

Ok! Thanks for your reply. :(

EDIT: What if i integrate photopost with vbulletin, will it be possible then?

I cant say for sure really. Is there some sort of posting POST COUNT BASED usergroup you can setup?. Thats really the issue. I think maybe there is.

Photopost works the same as most forum products you assign viewing uploading or commenting permissions based on usergroup permissions. A user is in a specific usergroup.

To do something like you want to do you need to make sure regular users which you can restrict viewing dont see content and the forum would elevate them to another usergroup after X many posts. You could then set in photopost that group can see certain content.

I´ve thought of that.
But "post counts" isn´t that "safe", cause it even counts ordninary posts in the forum, right?

So if a user post in 2 forum threads, then he/she would gain access to view all images.
It has to be 2 "posts" in photopost, not in vbulletin. Am i thinking right?

Yes your thinking is right but I can only suggest what I know about how things work.

Most likely if you dont have things working 100 like you like then you need to make some sort of code modification to do what you wish

Yes!
But maybe there is a similar mod already done by someone else?
