:shock:
Yeah...that's my immediate reaction on having to handle the permissions part. I've been trying for a few hours without success and am still tinkering away at it. Have a few more ideas on handing it though so hopefully one of them works... :?

EUREKA!
After a few more hours of messing around with auth.php, I've been able to come up with a working solution! So the initial work is now done. Now for some code cleanup and refinement and the Beta will be up hopefully sometime this weekend.

Already found a bug in memberlist.php due to the edits. Working to resolve it right now so I can post up a download link. Stay tuned...

First post updated with download link and new screenshots. This is currently in Beta stage so that any sort of bugs can be found and squashed. Don't hesitate to post them either :D

Here's the release topic on my site.

Hi
Installed OK but took me ages to find the mod settings. :lol:
ACP > Manage groups > Members: Look at bottom of Add users.

Installed on my test server which has 2 members.
If I select Registered users Members and try to add one of my existing members via Add users I get
The selected users are already members.
So it seems I'd have to delete the user and then re-add them. Which IMHO would cause a lot of problems.

If I understand the logic of the present settings:
You can set the time an individual user is a member of a set usergroup or not as the case be.
So I can set a user to be member a of a usergroup for a set number of hours and when the time I've set expires they return to their default usergroup/Registered.
So ultimately I could end up with 100's of users all with different settings.

IMHO Settings a group wide membership schedule would be simpler to manage if the settings were controlled via Settings rather then via individual members as they are at present.
Switching members between various usergroups for short period seems a bit complicated to me. I'd like to see a set number of days/months/years setting.
Just my thoughts. HTH

Gareth

Ps Keep up the good work I so need this mod!!!!

I could maybe add a way for the scheduled settings to be applicable to the entire group.

As far as the days/months/years goes the plan was to also put in place an expiration date which I didn't want to do until I got the initial MOD out the door. Doing this wouldn't take the user out of the group though. It would simply stop giving the users that group's permissions.

Hi

I have a paypal group subscription mod installed on my forum which automatically assigns the subscriber to the appropriate subscription usergroup but in order to get permissions to work correctly on my forum I’ve found it necessary to remove the subscribing user from the Registered/Default Usergroup.
Basically if a user belongs to more than one usergroup with different permissions settings then life gets very confusing both for the user and me trying to work out why they cannot do something or the other.

So I think what I’d like to see is an option to set a period of time a user remains a member of a usergroup say 12 months. At the end of that period the user is then moved to a usergroup of my choosing.

Being able to set a begin and end date or vice versa should be enough for that then. :)

Shouldn't be too hard or bad to add in.

Brilliant!!

Just noticed there isn't any method of changing a users schedule once set. Guess on the to-do list.
Also just realised this is not the easiest mod to actually test!!

Hi

Just managed to switch on view forum privileges but failed to switch off view forum privileges after 15 minutes or until I clears cache manually.
