This application will set a minimum of characters and/or words limit in posts/topics. You can exlude also exlude groups from the charatcers/word limit.

The Characters/Word restrictions can be set separately on a forum per forum basis.

Installation and Configuration:

To install this application, upload the admin folder inside the Upload folder to the root of your forum folder. Then go to your Admin Panel->Applications & Modules->Manage Applications & Modules and on the right side where it says: Applications Not Installed you will see a new application added called: Extra Forum Permissions. Click on the install button.

To configure it go to the Forums tab then from the drop down list choose Manage Forums. Then choose the forum and/or the forums where you want to apply the extra permissions, click the edit button and you will see an extra tab added there called: Minimum Characters Words. Click it and set the values to your likings.

To exclude groups from the Characters/Word restrictions, go to the Members tab then from the drop down list choose Member Groups->Manage Member Groups. Then choose the group and/or the groups that you want to exclude groups from the permissions restrictions. Click the edit button and you will see an extra tab added there called: Minimum Characters Words. Click it and exclude that group from the Characters/Words restrictions.
