Create a group with the restricted permissions that you want and then add the user(s) into that group.

From ACP, click on 'Users and Groups' tab. In 'User Defined Groups' add new group name in 'Create new Group' box. (example, name of group 'Restricted Group')

Then add your user to that 'Restricted Group'

Then change group permissions for the 'Restricted Group' to whatever you like.

Then change forum permissions so that members of the 'Restricted Group' cannot access any of the forums apart from the single forum you want them to access.

You simply log off! Then register in the name of your new user using the registration form.

Then log in again as your admin and administer the new user.

Firstname: Special
Lastname: User

or something similar. Wouldn't have thought that was a problem.

As far as I know, you cannot have a 'registered user' who has not 'registered'.

Simolar to most other people, I don't ask for addresses etc on my forum. Not sure I can be of any more help.

I would suggest, if you must have an address, that you make one up! Most addresses on TV are fictional.

Alternatively, put your address and email in, and once registered you can change it.

Can the OP please explain EXACTLY what needs to happen from the moment of registration?

What do you mean by "How get the User in the Forum without the registration Page?"? Do you mean add a user?

Simolar to most other people, I don't ask for addresses etc on my forum.
It will be the Registration for my Social Club.
Most addresses on TV are fictional.
Sure if someone add a fake adress, name, birthday,... the pay for any social club activities and dont get in because there name is not "very randy". :lol: So the Bus, Train,... will depart without him. The Therms and Condition say you have to add your real data if not you can get banned immediately from the Social Club and every money you payed is gone. :lol:
what it is you are looking for but maybe this will help
THX i will check it tomorrow "offline".

enduser must add there name, adress, birthdate to enter the social club forum. The forum registration is the social club registration. there are different levels in the membership but its more for internal purpose.

So I will give company a chance to support our group by add people from there "social media team" in my forum. the should have no rights to anything than answer of posts. That kind of user must be creates seperatly.

I also found no way to make 2 different registration page by an drop down menu.
Like -> Are you an Member of the following company: Yes, No
If yes a different PDF pop up when on no or different questions appear.

I'm beginning to think you need an extension for that.
