Hey i just installed the mod, but its not coming up in the Manage Groups module. I inserted the INCLUDE as follows:

Code: Select all

...
	</fieldset>
	<!-- INCLUDE auto_groups.html -->
	<fieldset>
		<legend>{L_GROUP_AVATAR}</legend>
	<dl>
...
And yet, it's not displaying the pannel before Group avatar. Please advise.

Thanks :)

The panel will only appear if the group is not "special" -- that is, if it is a group you created :)

Bingo. Thanks a lot.

Is this standard procedure? If not, it should porbably be noted in the install docs.

Yes, MOD MODs will require that you purge the cache afterwards.

i downloaded the mod, unpack it and install all mods given in "auto groups 100" [xml document]
after this i moved to the "contrib folder" and open "auto groups 023 to 100" [xml document]
But i failed to find the lines

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not S_SPECIAL_GROUP -->
	<fieldset>
	<legend>{L_AUTO_GROUP}</legend>
	<dl>
		<dt><label for="min_group_days">{L_GROUP_MIN_DAYS}</label></dt>
		<dd><input name="min_group_days" size="40" value="{MIN_GROUP_DAYS}" /></dd>
	</dl>
	<dl>
		<dt><label for="max_group_days">{L_GROUP_MAX_DAYS}</label></dt>
		<dd><input name="max_group_days" size="40" value="{MAX_GROUP_DAYS}" /></dd>

	</dl>
	</fieldset>
	<!-- ENDIF -->

The file in the /contrib/ folder is only an upgrade if you were using the RC version of this MOD. If you just installed 1.0.0, that file is not needed.

Should there be a read-me/install guide in the downloaded file like phpbb2 mods have or is phpbb3 mod install process completely different?

Will it be possible in future to auto-promote registered users? When signing up to the board, people go in the registered users group. After lets say 20 posts, I want them to go into a group that gives them access to other areas of the board. But I need to either make a group I made the default group for the newly registered (don't know how) or to have registered users auto promoted to another group (cannot auto registered users). How can i overcome this?

I don't see how the MOD doesn't already do this. The grouping is based on the destination group, not the source group. So you create a new group with a 20 post minimum, and the users will gain access to the new forum. The important item here is that they never leave the registered users group, because that could break some other functionality in phpBB :)

Great mod and works perfectly on my forum. :D

Only problem is it possible for the auto groups to ignore certain users ie. Admins and Moderators. I have to he make default group boxes checked and it keep auto promoting the admin and moderators users. The only problem I see with this is it removes the user colour and and custom tile or avatar that has been applied.

So is it possible to create exceptions for certain users so they don't get auto promoted...
