    The above is one route. Makes registration more complicated though which will turn away a number of people and it puts more work on the Administrator.

    Here is an example of promoting users:

    Create a new group for your approved members.
    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Add New Usergroup
    At the top it says "Create Usergroup Based off of Usergroup" in the dropdown choose Registered Usergroup and then click Go if necessary.

    The page will reload.

    At the top it will say "Create Permissions Based off of Usergroup". Choose Registered here. If you have no custom permissions for the registered usergroup or it says none, just click the save button.

    You can change the name and description if you want.

    Setup a new Usergroup Promotion.
    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Promotions
    Use these settings, where X is the number of approved posts that are required:

    Usergroup - Registered Users
    Reputation Comparison Type - Greater or Equal to
    Reputation Level - 0
    Days Registered - 0
    Posts - X
    Promotion Strategy - Posts
    Promotion Type - Primary Usergroup
    Move User to Usergroup - the group you created for approved members

    Run the scheduled task for Usergroup Promotions.
    Admin CP -> Scheduled Tasks -> Scheduled Task Manager
    Click the "Run Now" button to the right of the Usergroup Promotions task.

    Finally adjust the permissions for your forums as needed under Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions.

    Are you having issues with spammers registering? If so it would be best to address that issue. Here are some suggestions.

    New registered users are *always* placed in the Registered Users group. You would need to create a new usergroup and promote them from Registered Users to that new usergroup.

    You can rename "Registered Users" without any problems.

    Ok, thank you!
    How do I select what group new registered members are going to be placed in? Is it OK to rename the group "Registered User"?
