  • New Member Usergroup

    I created a new usergroup called New Member. How do I make this the default group for when new users signup? I will promote them after certain criteria.

    Please don't tell me I have to move 18000 ppl from the regged group into a new group and make the regged group my New User group?
    Should have an option to say "This will be the default usergroup" or something to that affect if the latter is the case.

    New users are put into the Registered Users group which is hard coded as usergroupid 2. Changing this would require modifying the register.php file:

    Code:
    	// assign user to group 3 if email needs verification
    	if ($vboptions['verifyemail'])
    	{
    		$newusergroupid = 3;
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		if ($vboptions['moderatenewmembers'] OR $_POST['coppauser'])
    		{
    			$newusergroupid = 4;
    		}
    		else
    		{
    			$newusergroupid = 2;
    		}
    	}
    Or you can restructure your groups so the default Registered Users group works for what you want to do.

      I definitely recommend this approach since messing with the default usergroup requires modifying the code and can cause other unintended consequences since the system expects usergroupid 2 to be the default group.
