Phpbb 3 ranks

Discussion in 'phpBB' started by Raynor152, May 20, 2008.

    I want to install something like a simple ranking system on my phpbb 3 forum. For example a user with <10 posts will be a "Something", a user with 10<x<50 posts will be a "Something else", and a >50 posts user will be a "Another rank". I choose the ranks and post limits. Google didn't help me on this one :( Maybe you guys can. How can I do this ? Thx

    I found something in the ACP but can't figure it out. How exactly can I use this feature ?

    I had a quick look at this for my own site. This doesn't seem to really do what Raynor152 was after.

    These ranks appear to be fixed to the user.

    What Raynor152 (and myself) are after, is something like the ranking system seen on Ogre3d (they use PhpBB2), for example. Something like this;

    Newcomer (0-25 Posts)
    Regular (25-150 Posts)
    etc...

    These ratings are displayed underneath the users avatar.

    Is there a similar way to do it with PhpBB3 or do you need some sort of plug-in?

    Thanks in advance :)

    When you are creating a new rank say "no" in the special rank field and a box will appear saying something like "minimum posts". When a user makes the number of posts you choose there, they will automatically be given that rank.
