XF 1.3 How to automatically add new users to a user group?


Well-known member
Is there a way to automatically add new users to a certain user group?

I don't think I can use user promotions because then the cron job will add users back into the group that I have manually removed. (Haven't tested it, but that is my understanding of how it works.)

When you manually remove them, add them to another user group and set that as part of the criteria for the promotion.

Thanks Brogan. That would work for me from the Admin CP, but not for my forum moderator who is using an add-on (Waindigo's Join Usergroup) to remove people from the user group.

If I set a promotion with a criterion that a user has to have less than 1 post (i.e. not posted), will users with 1 or more posts be un-promoted?
