  • Quick usergroup permissions question

    Say I have a secondary usergroup whose only job is to allow one permission... uploading images, or accessing a certain forum.

    How should I set the profile photos (image px, file size), signature character limits, max stored PMs, etc so that they don't interfere with the primary usergroup? Setting them to zero in some cases makes them unlimited, which sounds like it would override the primary permission. -1 then?

    I understand the yes/no permissions... little fuzzy on the field permissions, though.

    When multiple usergroups are involved the larger quota take precedence, providing the primary group has 'Allow Users to have Member Groups' set to 'Yes'. Otherwise the secondary settings are not applicable.

      Okay. So if I set it to a small number, 1 or 10, the primary usergroup will likely override it.

        The larger number takes precedence as per what I posted.
