  • Browsing Options per user group

    I have imported from another forum software and am so frustrated trying to do things. How do I turn on features such as pms by usergroup? I had to go into my screen name in the "user search" to allow myself to receive pms and I am an admin. How can I turn on things in the "browsing options" by user group. There is no way I am going into each member name to do this.

    After an import you should:

    1) Mass move people from the imported groups to the default usergroups:

    Admin CP -> Users -> Prune / Move Users

    The imported groups have no permissions by default, so this is a quick way to grant permissions for the default groups.

    2) Mass update user options:

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

    You must have permission to execute queries in your includes/config.php file:

    // ****** 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.
    $canrunqueries = '';

      Ok, I am sorry if I am stupid, but I am not quite understanding what I need to do. I already moved everyone over to the registered user group and I moved our admins over to the administrator group. Can you be more specific as I am beginning to feel like a complete idiot when dealing with vbulletin's sofware?

        In that case you probably just need to do step 2. I think are you describing the user options.

          Yes, I want to set the user options. I am not understanding your directions for step 2.

            Edit the includes/config.php file. Look for this code:

            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.
            $canrunqueries = '';
            Enter your userid into this code. For example, if your userid number is 1, then add the red code:

            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.
            $canrunqueries = '[color=red]1[/color]';
            Then go to your:

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

            There is a menu on that page with predefined options for mass updating user prefs.

              Thank you. That was helpful and I think I understand that. Is there a way to set certain user groups to not be able to pm? Last question.

                Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup (in the menu) -> Maximum Stored Messages

                Set this to 0.

                  This advice does not seem to apply to vB 3.8.2

                  Could someone please offer help for the issue(s) stated above with regards to mass editing?

                  Thanks!
