• Prevent New Web users from posting

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Fri Dec 30 10:44:37 2022
    I am trying to figure out how, or if there is a way, to restrict only New and WWW (i.e. they meet both requirements) from being able to post in message areas until they are upgraded. I was hoping to figure out that maybe I could set the new user level for those users to a separate value than for telnet/SSH/etc. users.

    I have read here before that some people don't allow WWW users to post at all even after they are not new (which I don't want to do). I currently have it set where all new users cannot post (or even see the message areas) by setting one new user level that is lower than the access level for all the areas.

    Is there a way to set the new-user access level for WWW new users to a lower value than the others, or restrict their posting abilities while they are "new"?

    I checked the wiki and the docs but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Thanks!

    Better yet, just check the protocol in the posting requirements string:
    LEVEL <upgraded> OR PROT != HTTP*

    Where <upgraded> is your upgraded-user level. That should do what you're wanting. "HTTP*" should match either "HTTP" or "HTTPS".
