How would one go about requiring the user to have userpoints before creating a node?

Perhaps with some kind of Rules validation?



There is a module in the userpoints_contrib project, which does exactly this.

You can combine it with userpoints_nc or a rule to also deduct points when a node is created, so that creating nodes costs something.

  • Read through the module, I think this can be easily handled with Rules, there is an "After saving new node" event. :) – giorgio79 Oct 6 '11 at 18:01
  • Yes, the basic task is easy to reproduce with a rule. userpoints_nc is however also able to deal with node deletions, revisions, author changes and so on (all optional/configurable), which is something you might or might not need... but if needed, would be a lot harder to correctly reproduce with rules. – Berdir Oct 7 '11 at 2:10
