  • Change user defaults

    I just changed my board from phpBB2 to vBulletin and so far vBulletin has blown me away. I just love all the options and control I have over everything. There is one thing I haven't figured out yet and its pretty important. How do I change the default settings for all my users? For example I want WYSIWYG to be default etc etc. I think you have to do it under Import/Maintence and use the Execute SQL Query but when I click on that it says "You are not authorized to execute SQL queries". Am I doing the right thing here, please help.

    To set the defaults for new users:

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

    To reset options for existing users:

    Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query -> Automatic Query

    Then choose the appropriate query and click on 'Continue'.

    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:

    // 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.
    $canrunqueries = 'x';

    ...with x being your userid number (not username).
