Ranks? What do they do?

Post by crossfire39 » Thu Feb 15, 2007 7:36 am

Just started using phpBB again and forgot a little bit about ranks :?

Do they hold any purpose? I am thinking of using them like masks on invison boards so a user can access certain forums depending on his rank. Could anyone direct me how to do this? Whether it be a mod or simple acp usage.

Ranks are just small text and images in profile under username. For example, "registered user" under your name

They are nothing to do with permissions, you can set them so users get a certain rank for a certain post count.....they are like a badge of merit sort of thing, nothing more to be honest :)
