Assign user special rank

Post by oceanic815 »

OK,

I must be missing something because I've been sitting here for about 20 minutes trying to find out how to assign a single user to a special rank I created...Where in the world do I do this? If I go to Manage User and select their user name, there is nothing to assign them a rank.

There is an OLD article for assigning special ranks to user, but unfortunately, it doesn't work in phpBB 3...

Help!

Have you added the rank to the board? Upload it into the ranks folder and then

Admin control panel -> users and groups tab -> users -> manage ranks

Click to add new ranks and then you should be able to select the uploaded rank in a drop down menu, make sure the "make special rank" option is set to yes before submitting,

Then Admin control panel -> users and groups tab -> users -> manage users

Enter the user name of the user you want to give the rank to and submit, then in the top right you should see a drop down menu, in this menu select ranks, on the next page you should be able to set any special installed ranks for the user and then submit :)
