Automatically move a user to a specified group after activation

Post by Johanssen » Thu Nov 03, 2016 5:17 am

We currently have our forum setup to require admin account activation for newly registered users (which is what we want), what we want to have happen is once an admin activates the account we want that user to be moved from the newly registered users group to one that we have created. Is there a way to do that?

Hello.

There's an extension for that in 3.1 but I'm not sure if there ever was a mod in [3.0.x] MOD Database Releases. If there isn't one you may have to upgrade to 3.1 as the 3.0 mods forums are now closed. Which version of phpBB are you using?

Edit: I've just had a search and there's this mod. Does that help?

Does your new group have the same permissions as the NRU group?

If you don't want to use the NRU group at all just turn it off. User registration settings > new member post limit 0

That is good to know, we are running 3.0.14, which I believe is the last version of 3.0.x before 3.1. If the feature is available as an extension in 3.1.x I we will look into to updating, we're just scared to as we don't want things to break.

With extensions it's as simple as removing the extension if it doesn't do what you want. Extensions don't make core changes so there shouldn't be an issue.
