XF 1.5 User Promoting, changing group by postings


Active member

in vBulletin we have the function to move users automatically from one user group to another when they reach a number of postings. Where do I find such a function in XenForo?

Kind regards & thank you in advance,

Thank you!

I have created a user group promotion from registred user to another group, when I user reaches 5 postings. Will the user automatically loose the old user group (registered) when he is being promoted? I see to toggle between changing group and additional group.

I use user promotions based on their postings. It seems that the promotions happen with a few minutes delay. Is there a background task active?

There's a User Group Promotion cron in the ACP which runs every 20 minutes. Note that promotions are only applied to recently active users. Any who aren't active will (immediately) have any relevant promotions applied when they next visit the forums.
