Need a mod for phpBB
Hidden forum until x posts

And before you say it, yes I have looked through the phpBB mods database.

I have probably missed it though so if such a thing exists I need a mod that will hide a forum until x number of posts have been made then it becomes visible and people can apply for access (remains private).

Thanks in advance!

How can anyone post if the board is not visible?

He probably means that the forum remains invisible until the poster reaches a certain number of posts, not until a certain number of posts are made in the forum.

Yes its a subforum or subsection that I want to keep hidden, not the entire board.

In a small community, you could manually promote users with a set number of posts into a new usergroup with rights to view the hidden forum. It's possible that it might be easier to automate that process (promotion to the new usergroup) than to code permissions based on post count.
