  • [Any Version] How To Set Defaults for New and Existing Users

    You can set the default for new registrations in your:

    vB4.x:

    Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> User Registration Options -> Default Registration Options

    vB3.x:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> User Registration Options -> Default Registration Options

    You can mass update the preferences of exsiting users in your:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query

    There is a menu with predefined queries.

    To run queries you first need to give yourself permission to run queries in the Admin CP. To do this, edit this section of config.php:

    Code:
        //    ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
        //    The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
        //    See the above entries for more information on the format.
        //    Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
        //    to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
    $config['SpecialUsers']['canrunqueries'] = 'x';
    ...with x being your userid number.

    Mankind is the only creature smart enough to know its own history, and dumb enough to ignore it.
