XF 1.1 User Groups Post Upgrade


Well-known member
Another things I've noticed since migrating from phpBB3 is the User Groups which my members are in.

The ones migrated across from phpBB3 have been added to a "REGISTERED" group, but all new registrations are being added by default to the default XenForo group "Registered"


I've given both groups the same forum permissions, however, is there a way to migrate all the members in the old "REGISTERED" group into the new "Registered" one?

It did the same with the Administrative group, but because there are only a couple of members in the Admin role, I could manually re-added them.

If you delete a group (click the red X) then it moves primary members of that group into the default "Registered" group.
