Auto add rank by usergroup

Post by ZoeterRonald »

Hello, i don't know if this is the right section to post a new feature request but i hope it is :P

I have a forum using PHPBB forums system. I have on my forum 2 usergroups, "Leader" and "Members".
I also have 2 ranks, "Leader" and "Member". This is what i would like very much:

When you add an user to an usergroup he automaticly gets the rank Member.
Now i must do it manually. So i add a person to an usergroup and then go to my control panel to give him the member rank.

Thought it would be a good idea to add in the new version...

There is no place to put in a feature request, this version is feature frozen...... you can keep an eye on the forum to see when and where you can post feature requests for the NEXT version....

This is already possible,
Set a rank to the usergroup
ACP -> Manage Groups -> Settings, then under "Group Rank" select the rank you wish those members to have, then click submit.

Then, when adding a member to a group
(ACP -> Manage Groups -> Members)
check the "Set as default group:" to "Yes" before hitting Submit.

Then he should automatically get the rank assigned to the group (as it will then be his default group).

When i go to ACP i see a section called "Group Admin". In that section i have 3 options/links: "Colors", "Management", "Permissions".
When i click on "Management" i can enter a: name, desciption, moderator, status, delete moderator, delete group.

I never seen Manage Groups in my ACP. btw, i'm using PHPBB version 2.0.22
