user rank = user group

Is there any way I can get the user's rank and group to be connected so that when the user posts and ranks up in its rank (forum rank) it's group will also go up allowing it do access more modules.

it would have to be a core hack, and a potentially dangerous one (at least at first glance) as permissions and user rank are in no way related, and as allowing rank to elevate group status would require tighter security restrictions than are currently imposed on rank (imwo).

Not to say that somewhere there isn't something that will do this, but just saying unless it was well orchestrated, I bet it would open some nasty little security holes.

i've been wanting something like that ever since i started using xoops!

it seems like any security problems wouldn't be that bad as long as you had special groups that couldn't be touched, like "webmaster" and "moderator".

or it might work if module administration could be done by either group or rank. but i guess a lot of people who didn't want the feature would complain about it being there.

Is there a way to have a module deny access to a user with a low post count?

You could insert a few lines of code into the module's header to do that. I don't know php, but it would be VERY easy for one of the module developers to show you.

if you find anything out, let me know because i would like to do that on one of my modules also.

An Admin from the german support site www.myxoops.org have give this solution:

Quote:
insert in XOOPS_ROOT/header.php this code:

if ($xoopsUser) { // Abfrage ob User eingeloggt
  
$xoopsTpl->assign('member_posts'$xoopsUser->posts());
  
$mrank=$xoopsUser->rank();
  
$xoopsTpl->assign('member_rank'$mrank['title']);
  
$member_posts=intval($xoopsUser->posts());
  
$member_rank=trim($mrank['title']);
} else {
  
$xoopsTpl->assign('member_posts',0);
  
$xoopsTpl->assign('member_rank','');
  
$member_posts=0;
  
$member_rank=0;
}


and in XOOPS_ROOT/modules/modulename/index.php this:

if ($member_posts 10) {
  
redirect_header(XOOPS_URL."/"3,_NOPERM);
  exit();
}



but, it doesn't work? Have anyone an idea?
