Re: Deleting Pre-defined Groups

well, by definition, a "pre defined" group is one of the ones that is part of the standard install, not one that is created by some MOD or other way.

that is why we did not understand what you were talking about.

For example:

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_groups SET `group_type` = 2 WHERE `group_name` = 'GUESTS';

Go directly into phpMyAdmin and change the group_type to 2 by clicking the pencil icon. If you do use that query, make sure that the group_name is EXACTLY as it appears in the groups table.
