People in usergroup loosing rank image.

Post by Adam_PHP »

Hello, I have recently created a forum over at http://SM269.com/phpBB3/

To be blunt, if a user registers and posts then they will have the rank of private of an appropriate image. That is all fine, but when I add them "[SM269] Member" group, it changes their rank to "[SM269] Member" which is completely fine, but it also changes the rank image to nothing.

Since the ranks images are according to post account, I would like them to show even when they are in the "[SM269] Member" group.

It just seems like I should be able to do this and that I am missing something.

Thank you,
-Adam

Admin panel>users and groups
Manage groups
Click settings next to the [SM269] groups and check this option
Group rank:

If it's on anything other than user default, they'll get that rank if they're in that group.

Hello,

Thank you for your quick reply. The group rank is set to user default.

As you can see, special ranks work fine.

I'm led to believe that it is not possible, I might have to use this:
[BETA] Nyquist Show Groups Info (multiple ranks)
Even though I'm not crazy about installing a beta mod on a live board.

Ranks and groups are separate things.

I just made a group, a user and a rank based on post count.

I put the user into the group and it still has its rank.

Does he still have a rank image based on post count? Maybe I'm stupid or ignorant, but I can't really see what I am doing wrong.

The user I will use for this example is "Ice". He is currently in the group "[SM269] Member". The group rank for this group is set to "user default".

He has currently made one post.

In the manage rank section, everyone with 1-99 posts is set to the rank of "private" with an image reflecting that before I added him to the "[SM269] Member" group.

Once I added him to the group "[SM269] Member" his name changed color, "[SM269] Member" appeared under his name and the image under his named disappeared.

This is what I would like:

I need Ice in the group to access members only forums, but I also need him to have an image based on post count.

Is this possible? I think I have done everything up right? Would it be possible for you to log-in under a limited administrator account on my site to try an diagnose the problem?

Thank you,
-Adam

Ok, this is as strange as all get out.

It appears to be working fine now, but I changed nothing and I even got the screenshot of it not working up there.

Thank you for all of your help.

Yep.

My other suspicion is that it's connected to your portal which changes a lot of files. Might be worth a look on their support site to see if anyone else had it.
