changed group but not changed

Post by Chabbal »

hello..
i changed group of a user and make the default group for him, but it's not changed in profile and posts.

i purged the cache
refreshed template sets, styles
promoted to group leader

but after doing all these things group is changed in Admin CP, but not in profile and with posts.

what's the problem?

USers can be in multiple groups, their colour, group ranks and avatar (if set) will be taken from their default group. Simply adding the user to a new group will not make it their default group so be sure that via the ACP you made the group the users default group.

I did read it the first time although that makes no difference to my previous reply. I need to be sure you understand how the group set up on phpBB works before we move on. Can you give me a step by step guide of what steps exactly you took when adding the user to the new group and making it is his default group.

on user's profile clicked on "Administrate user"
Select form: Groups --> Go
Add user to group --> Support Team --> Submit
after adding clicked on "Make group default for member"


Then...

Manage Groups
Support Team --> members
clicked and approved + Promoted to group leader

Purged the cache
Refreshes Template sets (SubSilver)

Problem not solved, group is not changed.

What exactly do you mean by group is not changed?

Can you provide a link to your board? And to the user that this is happening to?
The box said 'You need Windows XP or better' .... so I installed linux.
