How do I move all members to the registered user group?


Put everyone in the Registered user group as the primary group
Set the basic permissions in that group which will affect all users
Set specific additional permissions in any other user groups and add users to those secondary groups as required
Set node specific permissions for user groups as required
Hello Everyone,

Just bought my first Xenforo, have read this entire thread, and am hopeful ... :)

My first question is ... after importing my db, how do I put everyone in the Registered user group as the primary group?

That is the default behavior of XF. When a user completes the registration process, their primary group is Registered.

As Oracle said, assuming your source database is correct, all members will automatically be placed in the Registered user group by default.

It will be worth checking and cleaning your source DB before doing the import, to ensure all of the configuration is correct.
