This version is for the PRIMARY group. Here is the one for secondary groups:

As far as plugins goes, this one is an advanced plugin because you WILL need to make some tweaks to suit your needs.

What this plugin does: If you have a custom profile field, for example one for gender, it checks to see if the user has selected a specific value and then assigns them to a primary user group based on that selection. This happens at the time the user activates their email account after registering.

Instructions for installation:
A. Create your custom profile field and make a note of the field number. (Or simply make a note of the field number of an existing field.)

B. Make a note of the value you are checking for. For example, you may be looking to see if your member selected "male" in your custom gender field.

C. Make a note of the usergroup number that you want to set the user to.

D. Here you have two options:
Option 1: Edit the attached XML file before you import it to change the field number, the value that you check for and the usergroupid. In my XML file, I am checking field5 to see if the value is yes and changing the usergroup to 10.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

If, for example, you want to check the value of field6, change field5 in the XML file to field6. If you are looking for "male" instead of "yes", change

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And, finally, change the usergroup as appropriate. Instead of 10 in this line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

substiture your usergroupid of choice.

Option 2: Import the XML file as is, open the plugin manager, and make your edits there.


NOTE: This mod works for forums that require users to verify their email address upon registration. If your forum does not require users to verify their email address, you will need to use a different hook. If I have time, I'll test that variation.

Hello, I cannot seem to find the alternate "female" option in your code examples.

How does one go about adding that?

Brinnie 15 Jul 2005 06:58

Hello, I just installed it and and it didn't work! :(

I registered a test account and chose the option "male" as directed in the in instructions, but it stayed in the same group :(

I uploaded this XML:
Quote:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<plugins>
<plugin active="1" product="vbulletin">
<title>Put User In User Group Based on Field Value</title>


<hookname>register_activate_process</hookname>
<phpcode><![CDATA[// Get the value for field 5
$user = $db->query_first("
SELECT field5
FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "userfield
WHERE userid = " . $vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] . "
");


if ($user['field5'] == 'male')
{
$userdata->set('usergroupid', 12);
}]]></phpcode>
</plugin>
</plugins>
Does it make a difference if I use radio buttons?
Please help :(

There is no need to bump a thread so many times in such a short time peroid.

Did you create a new custom profile field via the admin cp?

Yes sir, I did. I used radio buttons. set one to male, set one to female and made it required on registration.

Anything else I could have missed?

Make sure you have it case sensitive. Make sure you get the right field number and make sure you have the right user group number.

yes, it's field number 5, my first custom field.
yes, case is correct.
and im quite sure usergroup 12 is the one I want them to be added to.
the customized usergroup1.xml I posted was exactely what I uploaded into the plugins.

I do not understand why it does not work. Might it be related to the idea that there is no secondary "female" option in your example script?

Brinnie, you have to remember 3.5 is beta software. It's working on my test board and my live board. Nobody else has complained that it doesn't work. I don't know why it's not working for you.

And given that you've changed the copyright in your footer, I can't see what version of the beta you are using.
p.s. I'm not entirely certain that your copyright is kosher according to the vbulletin license.

Brinnie,

Unless you paid for copyright removal, at the least, the copyright needs to read:

vBulletin, Copyright 2000 - 2005, Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.

You don't have to keep version information, but the rest is required by Jelsoft.

:)
