  • Changing user's Primary Usergroup upon registering

    Once a user confirms registration, they are automatically made a member of the "Registered Users" group (id: 2) by default. Is it possible to change this? Meaning, when a user first registers, I want to automatically assign them to "Newbie Group with Limited Permissions" group, for example. Then after meeting a promotion requirement, they move to "Registered Users". Is this possible?

    The only workaround I can think of is to replicate the "Registered Users" group using a different name, then change the name and/or permissions of the original "Registered Users" group.

    Searched the forums but couldn't find an answer. TIA!

    Your workaround is the only way - to modify which group they go into would involve modifying the code which isn't supported here.
    Vote for:

    - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
    -
    *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - "Quick Route" Interface...

        Why not make the Registered Users group the limited permissions one, and then use promotion to a group with more permissions afterwards, that is what I am doing, I tell people they must first introduce themselves in a specific forum, once they have done that they are moved a to a different usergroup that enables them to use the website more fully.
