XF 1.3 How can I assign new user roles?


Active member
I've defined a new user role "active user" and a promotion "upgrade to active user".

Users with more than 20 posts should become "active users" (with more privileges).

However, I'm not quite sure how I can assign this "active user" role ro already existing users. Some of them have more than 500 posts, but don't get the new role automatically.

Do I have to run a cron or is it necessary to upgrade them manually?

regards, rhodes

Recently active members will be promoted via a routine cron task.

If you want it to apply to all member, run 'Rebuild User Group Promotions' under Tools -> Rebuild Caches.
