I see use for this mod for people with established boards who don't want to bother running sql queries to change hundreds or thousands (or more) usergroups than go to promotions system like this... In those cases I could definitely see use for this mod, I tagged it way back when.

What queries do you have to run?

Setup the promotion, and run the promotion cron, it'll fix all of the users. No queries.

Never thought of that.

I'm a noob to vB and although I understand there's a learning curve, I have a total of 30 sites to look after (over and above the site I'm adding vB to) . Spending time searching through oddles of docs, posts and what not to find a "howto" - I simply don't have enough hours in the day.

Don't laugh but I wasted 5 hours at the .com forum the other day trying to figure out how to add _blank to the vB link. So when I find a plug in that will do what I want and can add in 5 min or less it's likely I'll go for that option every time.



Cheers

I understand your reasoning but if it took you 5 hours to add target="_blank" to the phrase that controls the link back to vbulletin.com maybe you should accept that you may not know the best way to proceed at the moment. Just because the mod path may be easier right now it's many times better in the long term to use built in features rather than mods whenever possible. If you ever run into trouble where you need official support all mods will need to be disabled before anyone at vbulletin will even look at your setup... Plus mods can introduce other bugs and there's no guarantee a future vb upgrade won't break a mod- then what would you do? As an admin you need to look long term, big picture stuff.

I looked at the code and am fairly sure it will work on 3.8 and maybe even earlier versions... it's just 1 plugin on registration to do it's magic.

I would install it and test to make sure, worst case you can uninstall, there are no database changes.

You will have to open the xml file and change "4.0.0" to "3.0.0" where it says "minversion."

EDIT- I have confirmed it does work in 3.8.

FYI if you add an additional IF statement to the plugin you can use this to move only people with a certain email address type to a different group... such as:


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

Will only move new users from military addresses or...


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

Will work for users with .edu addresses.

Works, but I think it skips the User awaiting Email confirmation usergroup and moves them directly into the specified usergroup.

Hi
I am looking for something like this, where you can change the default user group.

But I want to have something that you can have the ability for users to CHOOSE a usergroup themselves on registration. I plan to have a usergroup per team and on registration someone selects that team and that team is a usergroup which only has access to that team's forums. Is that possible?

It might be possible but it would be a different mod than this. I would suggest making an official request in one of the requests forum (paid or unpaid) if you haven't already.

Confirmed here too. Installed per these instructions and works like a champ.

And I don't use the promotions system, I do usergroup changes manually only so this is right up my wheelhouse.

Oops - Problem with this upon testing!

New registrations, although they are told they must complete registration by clicking on a link in a email for verification, actually do not if you have this set to put them in any usergroup other than Users Awaiting Email Confirmation. It puts them in the group you select instead!

If you have it set to Users Awaiting AND another usergroup other than registered users, it still defaults them to the registered users group after successful email confirmation.

In short, it looks like this mod is not compatible with the email verification for registration option, at least in vB 3.8.6.

Anyone want to take a looksee and verify my conclusion?

Use the default vbulletin builtin promotion system, instead of working agasint the system with an addon.

Which in my case leaves me back to overriding the promotion system by manually promoting posters who I know for sure are not spammers and who I don't want to have restricted.
