Deleting Pre-defined Groups

Post by ttf »

Hi
I have a private forum. I find certain groups redundant.

Can I delete the groups- Bots and Guests?

No, they are required. You can however hide them from the front page.

Can you suggest a way to hide certain groups in drop-down box on 'Find a member'. I want only user-defined groups and 'Registered Users' to show up as options.

If need be, move my thread to the appropriate section.

You can make Pre-defined groups hidden by setting their group_type to 2 in the database.

a MOD does not create a "pre-defined" group. by definition a "pre-defined" group is one that comes as standard in the phpbb install.

you can NOT delete any pre defined groups.

therefore, you can not create any predefined groups either.

please explain exactly what you are trying to accomplish, not how you think it should be done, but what you want to accomplish.

thanks,
robert

The reason your bumps are not being noticed is because you were posting in a topic marked as solved 2 months ago. You were better off starting a new topic.

Ah I see I thought you meant you were deleting the default installation groups.
