You should set permission based on groups. Permissions is nothing to do with this mod.

i have set all the group based permissions, when a user is registered it is added to the group automatically( should do it), but the problem is that the registered user becomes default user for the user...when ever i manually remove user from registered user group the permissions works fine as i want...

so how can i make that admin defined group as default group for the user (using this mod)

ex: boys groups permissions work fine when i remove the user from registered users.. but on registration the user is added to both groups making the registered user default group.. i want the user to be added in one group only that i have defined making this group default group....

thx in advance...

Custom profile fields based groups cannot be default. Mod is designed this way.

I also have a similar query. Depending on custom profile fields value I am putting users into "Buyers" and "sellers" group. I have assigned different rank images to Buyers, Sellers and Registered group. But the board only shows the rank image of registered usersgroup. Maybe bcos it automatically is the default usergroup :?:
How do I show the Buyers and Sellers rank images ?

If you add users to those groups at ACP Groups and Users page, do rank images appear for them?

Only if I make the new group as their default group. So, essentially what I think is required is to make the group on registration as the default group. We can have this option in ACP "On/Off" for making the group on registration as the default group. Or atleast giving the users a choice to select their default group on registration.

I have this same issue. The value I set in "Field name/title presented to the user" and the value from "Entries" shows on viewtopic and in profile. No rank images.

So for example, it would show:

Choose a role: Developer

instead of a rank image, which is what I assumed would happen.

Rank images come from default groups, if applicable, you should set the new group as default.
In this mod, custom profile fields based groups cannot be set default.

This looks like a big drawback of this MOD. The whole purpose of putting users in different groups is to clearly distinguish them by providing separate rank images, color etc. But nothing such happens using this MOD.
Pls do something to make these groups as their default. Or give them a choice on registration to choose their default group.

If you have 5 custom profile fields based groups to which user joins on registration, how can you select which group be default?
That is the problem and made me dismissing default groups selection option for cpf based groups.

If you prefer to make last cpf based groups set as default, you can use the code change below.

Open
includes/functions_group_on_regs.php
Find

Code: Select all

       $group_default = false;
Replace with

Code: Select all

       $group_default = true;

Thanks works great for me :)

Is there any possibility of using switches like IF_GROUP_SELLER etc. in the templates to restrict viewing of custom profile fields to specific group only.
