Newly registered users conversion from phpbb2 prob

Post by bort70 »

Hi everyone,

So I finally moved my forum to phpBB3 and the conversion went very well.

However, one of the main features I was interested does not seem to work. Newly registered users can post immediately. So I guess some of the settings were not turned on?

Since I'm not 100% sure about what's going on (the ACP is a lot to absorb), are these the correct settings for me to turn on the Newly registered users?

ACP -> General -> User registration settings -> New member post limit -> 5
ACP -> General -> User registration settings -> Set Newly Registered Users group to default -> YES
(though I'm not sure what they mean by "this group also being their default one", is it permanent?)

then...
ACP -> Forums -> Groups’ forum permissions -> Newly registered users -> Forum name -> Role -> Newly Registered Users


then...
ACP -> Users and Groups -> Groups’ permissions -> Look up usergroup -> Newly registered users -> User permissions/Role -> Newly Registered Users

Thanks

How are you testing if it is working?
Is this only users registered since your conversion, or on users already registered on your old board before the conversion?

Hi, it's both. New users (with zero posts) who signed up before the conversion and new users after the conversion can post without moderation. I created a new test account with similar results.

I applied the changes I mentioned above, that seems to have done the trick, but I'm awfully confused about all the new settings, which doesn't help that they overlap the old board's settings.

So was what I changed correct and is there a better way of doing things?
