Newly registered users issue

Post by crazynlazyguy »

I have an issue where the permissions I setup for Newly registered users isn't getting applied to users who are in that group by default.

Users who are in "Newly registered users" are being given full permissions as if they were a registered user even though they aren't.. I have checked permissions and they are restricted and still not being applied. :roll:

1st problem is new users never get moved into the restricted group even though this is set.

2nd problem is if I move folks into that group manually they never get automatically moved out after making their 1 post.

Do the forums have the newly registered user access permission applied to them?

Newly Registered users are also at all times members of the Registered users group. Therefore, if you want to block nru's from doing something, you must use Never permissions for that group. No's will be overridden by Yeses from the Registered users group.

Yes. I also set this in the settings but new members never get forced into the group!

I noticed that but I'm not sure how to limit forums to only "Newly registered users"

I have it setup so "Newly registered users" can NEVER access certain forums but since they are members of both they CAN access all forums even though I specified NEVER in the "Newly registered users" forum permissions.

This is very frustrating.

Well I was able to at least keep members with fewer than 1 post out of other forums with this extension but it would be nice if PHPBB could do that itself without such use of 3rd party extensions.

I can if it's set up right.

Want to PM me a login to see what's wrong?

It can. It does. You have something wrong. Hopefully, KevC will sort it out.
