This modification helps administrator to restrict each member group on per board basis by allowing them specific number of new topics or replies they can make in a time alloted by admin.

By default mod is disable and doesn't interfere with the current forum settings.

All mod settings are available under
Admin center -> Configuration -> Restrict Posts Per Board

To enable the mod go to following mentioned link and enable the mod

A specific setting is available for calendar section also which restricts the user if user has crossed the limit of new topics he/she can made. Also the calendar setting works only if posting is restricted by topics.

To make settings for each membergroup go to

Here two coloumns are show respective to each membergroup
- Max Posts -> Enter the number of maximum new topics/replies you want a membergroup can make
- Time Limit -> Enter the time span in which you want a group can make specified posts.

For e.g. if you want the a group can make 50 new topics/replies in 2 days enter as following
- Max posts -> 50
- Time span -> 2

Note - If any of the 2 columns is left blank, the mod neglects the value of other column, i.e if you have entered value for 'Max posts' only but 'Time span' hasn't been filled. In that case mod neglects both values.

Hi Joker,

There appears to be an issue with the mod (Unless my settings are wrong). It's not allowing newly registered users to post at all, receiving the error 'Oops, it looks like you have reached your posting limit.'

Any chance you could advise?


Can you show me a screen shot of the settings you have placed.

Moreover which user groups are allotted to new members?

Here you go, it is the same in every trading forum:

Umm, not able to re-produce the issue on local test forum. Can you share your forum link?
