    Users are not moving from usergroups...

    I have set up the promotions and the permissions and all it seems to do is add them to a secondary usergroup... yet they still carry the restrictions of the primary usergroup.....

    Any ideas?

    That is the correct functionality.

    The primary user group doesn't change.

    right.... that is not handy that...

    so all the extra permissions are lost...

    Some things of vbulletin do so much better than xenforo

    A very important thing you will read in that first guide linked by Brogan - don't use Never in permissions. Use Not Set (No) instead. I suspect this is the issue with your primary user group (which, as you will also read, should be the Registered group for everyone).

    Ok so this is how I want to do it....

    people who have not posted cannot send pms... their first 2 posts go into moderation... after that they move up and out of moderation.. they then move to another group and when they hit 25 posts another section of the forum opens up and they can then send PM's then at 1000 posts they see another section..... etc etc...
