    Quick question.

    Secondary user groups .
    I have a Verified Members group with signtures turned off.
    I also have a Well-know Members group with the signture turned on.

    If i tick both secondary groups why does the Verified Members group get priority.
    Is there anyway i can make the Well-know Members group priority?

    I'm using the trophy addon.

    Thank you. ;)

    Thanks for the quick reply Jake,

    The problem being if i set it to "not set" then the signatures become available.
    I only wish this to be available after 200 posts ect.

    The thropy addon ticks both the boxes and will not enable the signatures.

    -> Secondary user groups . <-
    Ticked - Verified Members group with signtures turned off.
    Ticked - Well-know Members group with the signture turned on.

    = Signture is off

    If un-tick - Verified Members group with signtures turned off.

    = Signture is On

    I'm confused!

    That means the permission is being granted by another of the user's groups. You should find the group that is wrongly granting that permission and change it to Not Set there as well.

    Primary user group - pre-moderation (No-Set)

    -> Secondary user groups . <-
    Ticked - Verified Members group with signtures turned off. (I want this to be off)
    Ticked - Well-know Members group with the signture turned on. (I want this to be on)

    = Signture is off

    Why is the off priority over the on?

    If i un-tick one or the other it works fine. Both together gives me signture off.

    4 hours i've been at this. <sigh>

    Which permissions are being used? Not Set, Allow, or Never?

    That means that user will never have permission to use signatures, no matter what his other groups are set to.

    I'm unable to find the correct combination for this to work Brogan.

    Set the Pre-Moderation and Verified Member user groups to Not Set (No).

    Set the Well-Known Member user group to Allow.

    Only members in the latter group will have (the ability to edit) signatures then.

    You may need to remove all signatures as any existing signatures will continue to be shown - the permissions is just for editing the signature.

    Got it.

    I forgot the each user can have there own permissions too which over ride the rest. :whistle:

    Once i changed the users permissions to Not Set (No)
    and the others to your instructions Brogan, it started to work.
    Set the Pre-Moderation and Verified Member user groups to Not Set (No).
    Set the Well-Known Member user group to Allow.

    Already been done.

    Nice, cheers jake and Brogan. (y)
