  • How do I set mass user options?

    Hello,
    I due to importing users from ipb1.3 all the imported users option settings are wrong for instance the “Enable PM’s” is not check and “Show Images” etc.
    Is there any way to set user options for uses?
    Or will have to create a SQL query of some kind.

    Thanks,
    Mat

    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 from the drop-down box 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:

    // ****** 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 = 'x';


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