Simplify removing users from (default) groups

Post by D@ve »

I'd like to have an option in the Groups View in the ACP to type in a user name to remove users from the Group. If you have groups with a couple of hundred members you have to click through half a dozen pages to find the name.

Further there is no option to remove the "default group" option from a member in the ACP group view. The only way to do that is to remove the user of the group an add him again

You can do that from Manage Users.
Select the User
select "Groups" from the upper-right dropdown.
Click "Remove from group" from whichever group you want to remove them from.

If by that you mean "type in multiple names at once" it would make much more sense.

Each member must have one default group. To "remove" a default group from a member you have to make another group the default for him.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

Yep, actually I thought just of a second button (remove) below the the textarea for adding users.

Each member must have one default group. To "remove" a default group from a member you have to make another group the default for him.
Yep, I know. But if you remove a user from a group which is his default group phpBB must do anything to ensure that (I guess it switches "registered user" to the default group).
The same thing could happen if you had an option "remove from default group".

@brf:
I know. A couple of weeks ago I had to remove about 50 Users from a group (long story). And it's even MORE efford to do that via the "manage user" pannel.

Imo this options belong also in the "Groups Management".
