  • Different Groups of Users

    I am looking to start a forum. I want the ability for a user to choose a specific group when they register.


    User: John123
    Group: Ford

    User: Jack123
    Group: Chevy

    User: Jane123
    Group: Honda

    Can vBulletin do this? How many Groups can be made? Also would I be able to search by grouping (Ford, Chevy, Honda) and type of group (Domestic, Import)?

    It could be possible if you did the selection as a custom profile field, but you'd then need a plug-in to run after registration to put them in a user group based on their selection. You can get help with that over at once you have a licence.

      That is what I was thinking. When a new user creates their profile, they would select which sub-group they belong to (Ford, Chevy, Honda)... which would also determine their main group (Domestic, Import). Then there would have to be a search option which enables the user to choose which groups to search by.

      Or, have an option on the Forum page, under "Forum Tools" to choose which group or sub-group (Domestic, Import...or Ford, Chevy, Honda) to show results.
