This mod will allow you to place all the newly registered members at a usergroup of your choise. The process is automatically. All you have to do after you install the mod, is to enable it and enter the group id that you want the new members to be placed automatically after they register at your forum. You can do so at your Acp-Settings-Options-User Registration Options. All the way to the bottom you will see the mod''s 2 settings. For more info, please have a look at the atatched screenshot below.

Doesn't work for me ... adds the option just fine, but new registrations are still going into the default Registered user group.

Nevermind - PEBKAC

Did you enable it as well? May I see a screenshot of the mod setting?

I would be very careful with a modification like this. vBulletin basicly has the registered usergroup hardcoded for a lot of things.

Can you give a few examples please as to why you should be very careful with this? This mod doesn''t post any security risks what so ever.

Hello, this mod was exactly what I was looking for.

Could you tell me how to install this? Do I just upload it to the install folder of my forum?

Install it from Plugins & Products->Manage Products->[Add/Import Product]->EITHER upload the XML file from your computer in your Acp.

anyway to get this working on 3.8? Would love to be able to set new users to automatically go into the 3 groups i have to put them in manually at the moment. Is there anyway to specify which group is primary and which groups are additional when you add several groups for them to join? Thanks :) Hope to see this on 3.8 :-D

I think this mod is perfect for a security improvement you can do in VB (inpired from vbseo forum)
Set a temporary usergrup for registrations that has limited capabilities (just posting and reading, no bb code, file upload ... ) and make a promotion scheme to move users to default registered usergroup in vb with normal wrights after they have 10 messages (for example)
This way you prevent any spammer/ possible hacker to open doors in vb.
Is highly unprobable a hacker will have time to post 10 messages you will not delete so he can hack you.

Tagged for now as I am still setting up my forum :)

If you have yet to setup your forum you can set it up like that without this mod... just make registered users a limited permissions group and promote everyone to a new group after 10 posts.

EXACTLY, don't understand why people work so hard against the system.

As they say, different people, different tastes/likings :)
