If the MOD is working correctly, it *should* be that the user can reset their proper default group in the User Control Panel (groups tab) and not have to worry about it again until the user gets another promotion.

AAAAAhhhhhhhhhh! Right, I understand now ;)

I didn't realise this, it's beginning to make sense now. It works with a vertical structure really, and it will work with my board to a large extent, certainly for the largest user-defined group. My board is a problem in that it isnt really vertical in many respects...

But if all users have to be registered_users and user_defined is set at 10 posts, and that user is already a member of that group ***and*** is already a member of other groups, what happens?

Users can be in any number of groups at the same time in phpBB.

Hey Jelly.

Any chance you could edit, or tell me how to edit the mod so that an added option would be to determine a person's inclusion in a group by the amount of time they've spent logged in on the forum?

(so, perhaps pull data from this guy's mod here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... a&start=45)

thanks. ^^

I've got a some problem,
I installed the MOD and everything is working fine only I get this in my Manage Groups Panel:
Image

I modified phpBB 2 enough that I was able to read the code somewhat,
But phpBB 3 has got me stumped.
I know this is a simple fix I just need to know what I did to the file to make this like this.

Thanks for your help in advance.

If a sudden wave of "I have free time" comes over me, possibly. It should be easy for other MOD authors to hook into the auto groups MOD, but they'd have to supply their own administration screens. :ugeek:

Just thought I would stop by and let you know that my problem wasn't any thing that I did wrong, it was the editor that I was editing with.
I used Dreamweaver to edit all my files and it must have added in or subtracted some code or something because I use NotePad 2 and it works like a charm.

Thanks for your help.

I've seen this now in quite a few mods and I got to ask. What is that supposed to mean? Only the one who created the mod is allowed to use it?

Many MOD authors will put an FAQ in the post so that users only have to read one post to solve common problems. Its a new feature of the MOD DB :)

Hi A_Jelly_Doughnut

Can you please explain with screenshots of phpBB v3.0 how to create a new group say "new". Every newly registered member should go in this group, they have achieved the post count of 20 posts only then they could enter certain topics and upgraded to normal registered group :?:
Soory for asking this much cause i got it installed without any problem but am facing problems in using it :oops:
