It may be worth changing the description for the mod to reflect this.

So instead of the word 'post' it says 'topics'

Edited:

I've done a bit of a test on the mod, and the behaviour isn't quite as expected. It's a little bit strange.  :)

An user can make as may replies as they want to posts (that's good).
However if they then try and post a new topic (after positng replies) they won't be able to because the replies they have made are counted.

Hmmm, lets simply bifurcate the mod functionality into 2 parts
- Take posts in account and restrict per posts
- Take topics in account and restrict per topics

bifurcate

Well I've learnt a new word today :)

The functionality I'm looking for is simply to restrict the number of new topics irrespective of the number of posts.

At the moment it restricts the number of new topics if there have been posts on that board.

The feature is under development, and a new version will be released soon for the same.

Good to see an option now for 'Posts' or 'Topics'

The mod works well now - thank you.  :) Thank you for taking the time to update it.

I was just trying to add some more restrict topic options to other sections on my forum, and noticed that after enough boards or specific membergroups are clicked with a certain amount of topics and max days, I was unable to add more options to other areas. I could set the amount of max topics and time limits in the other boards, but as soon as I pressed the submit button, none of the new boards I selected stuck. (the original boards I set were still checked)

Is there a certain amount of boards you can check before it cuts off?

*Edit- just uninstalled this mod, as well as the database table. I then reinstalled it, had a clean slate, and then scrolled down to one of board options down the forum- and set the specs I wanted just for that one board- and no changes were saved when I pressed submit. To me it looks like this mod doesn't recognize boards after a certain amount- even if it is the only board you want to have topic limitations for. So if there are say 50 boards on a forum, and I only wanted say board 48 and 49 to have topic settings, it wouldn't save- options only seem to work in the first 10 or so boards installed on the entire forum.

LOL. It's been a long day, hope I'm making sense.

Well I tried with ~75 boards, and mod worked perfectly fine. I hope you have both columns(max posts/ time limit), as leaving any column blank will clear out both columns.

hmm. Ok, well obviously it's just me then. ;)

Yes, I am filling in both columns. It does work just fine when it's one of my first 40 boards. As soon as I try to set any of the boards after that, all the information I entered for those boards disappear as soon as I press the submit button.

Maybe it's a conflict with another mod I installed, but I went through and uninstalled any mod with a post.php edit also(as to me, it seems that would be the only file in this mod that could conflict with another mod), and that didn't help.

I tried different cache settings, and that didn't seem to work either. Any ideas or suggestions, as I'm stumped- and I would really like to use this.

Ok, it's been 3 days now, and I'm officially out of ideas trying to make this work. I would really like to use this mod, and I'm sure your time is valuable joker; so if you are interested in helping troubleshoot why I can't add settings to anything after 40 boards, I would happily pay you.

If you are willing, please pm me with costs.

Thanks.

Ummm, try to add a new board and see if you can add settings to it. I suspect it has something related to board settings. If that also fails PM me details, so that I can debug the issue on your site.
