XF 1.2 Promoting users and moving to a group instead of adding a group

    I really did not find this a solution to this.

    Users are in Group A. Based on a certain criteria, for example x posts, I want to move them to another Group B. The only thing I found was adding them to Group B. Group A is still the main group they are in. Is there a way to achieve changing groups?

    Thanks for your help.

    That's not possible without an add-on.

    However, I would recommend reading the resource in my signature about user groups and permissions as that is not how the system has been designed.

    Thanks, I did, but this didn't help me doing what I wanted to do.

    What are you trying to do?

    Users automatically are in the "registered" group after clicking the confirmation-link. There is no pre-moderation.

    Users who have zero posts for more than 30 days should move from "registered" to "zeroposters" (doing this manually through batch from time to time).

    If they start writing (after 1 post) they should being moved to "registered", right now when promoted they keep "zeroposter"s as their main group and have "registered" as a second group. This may not really comply to your system, does it?

    Do it the other way.

    Set the Registered group to moderated, promote into a group which isn't moderated.
    Remove those members from the additional group if they don't post in 30 days.

    The poster is doing it manually.

    One very basic question: can you please tell me how to set a usergroup "moderated" ?

    Can it be done here?


    What does it do?

    Oh.... It could be
    "Follow message moderation rules" from "permission_general_followModerationRules"

    I am using a non-English-version.

    But from:


    For example:

    - I want users to write PCs from 10 posts upwards
    - the registered group has to be moderated, no PCs
    - if the user has more than 10 posts, he will be promoted the unmoderated group, where he can send PCs

    All users with <10 posts have to be moderated then?

    Is there another way to achieve this?

    Make sure the permission "Follow message moderation rules" is set to Not Set (No).

    That usergroup is for guests and users who have not confirmed their email address after confirmation.

    As Brogan stated, set the Registered group to moderated and use a usergroup promotion to remove them from moderation later.

    I don't understand what you are asking. Do you want new users to be moderated or not?

    Sorry, I posted the wrong group, but I meant the usergroup settings.

    But I can't moderate hundreds or thousand posts a day?
  15. ehd

    No actually not.

    I want users move to another main usergroup after x posts. But that doesn't seem to be possible. So I'm looking for a solution.


    <10 posts, no private conversations
    >10 posts, private conversations allowed

    Use a usergroup promotion. Personal conversation permissions for Registered are Not Set (No). Promote to a secondary group after 10 posts where these permissions are set to Allow.

    OK, thank you.

    Primary usergroups stays Registered.
    Additional usergroup will be PCsallowed

    So is it enough to just make a group with one click at "Send PCs" and allow that (rest is not set), or do I have to copy all the same settings from the registered group?

    Thanks, promotion works fine.

    But this one puzzles me:
