    I run a Harry Potter board, and all my new members start out in "Students" (renamed from the stock registered users group). from there, they can ask to be sorted into one of the four houses. I just switch thier primary usergroup as needed. So what you want to do is setup a single forum that new members can see and ask for access to other thing in. Then move them where they belong. Alternatively, you can make certain usergroups publically joinable, and moderate the requests.

    You want the Junior Members group to be the default for new registrations. So think of the Registered Users group as the Junior Members group, and assign them appropriate permissions.

    There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. As Jake said the default group for this is the Registered group (usergroupid 2) and any efforts to change this will cause unintended problems.

    OK I understand that now. Is there any way we can change things so that COPPA members awaiting membership approval automatically go into the Junior Members group?

    All new registrations are automatically put into the Registered Users group, so you need to treat this as a starting group. Then you can promote from there. The specifics depend on exactly what you want to do.

    Yes I have set the user permissions appropriately, but I cannot see how we can get the system to sign them up as Junior Members, instead of Members. What we would like is for all those who have signed up with parental consent to be unable to post on the main forum.

    As in you don't want them to have access to the main forum? You can manage forum permissions by group in your:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

    Creating a Junior Forum

    We want to have a Junior Forum as a seperate part of our main forum.
    We have set up the forum and a user group for Juniors. What we cannot figure out is how to make it so that Junior members just become Members of the Junior Forum and not the main one.
    Any advice will be much appreciated.
