Detailed description of the tasks:
The Extension Auto Groups
automates the process of adding members to groups. I need to extend this to include 'Custom Profile Fields', specifically one field which is a date.
Auto Groups can be extended and there's a good explanation in its Github Wiki page
, unfortunately I just don't have the skill or time to sit down and work it all out.
A little background information to better understand the job
I have been running an Irish bereavement support forum for ten years now, users have been widowed or bereaved of a life partner. We have over 2300 genuine members who, on registration, submit the date when they were bereaved (Custom Profile Field).
Recently, we opened a new section/forum for members bereaved over two years. We would like to limit who can see this section to members who are actually over the two year mark so they can talk freely without upsetting newly bereaved members.
Currently, we have a VIP group for members who post three times or more. This group gives members more permissions and opens up more of the forum. Members are manually added to this group by myself if they fill all the required criteria.
I plan to make a new group (unnamed right now) for members who are over two years bereaved and they will have access to the new section of the forum, 'Bereaved over Two Years'. BUT
they must first be a member of the VIP group before being added to this group.
