If I wanted users to automatically be placed into X usergroup rather than "registered users" after they register, how can I make this happen?
FYI, the default groups are hard coded into this file:
public static $defaultGuestGroupId = 1; public static $defaultRegisteredGroupId = 2; public static $defaultAdminGroupId = 3; public static $defaultModeratorGroupId = 4;
You should respect the roles of the default groups. They are hard-coded and changing them will cause problems in the future (at the very least, having to remodify the files after every upgrade).
