Displaying User Groups

Post by James246 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 4:59 am

Hi there,

I'm an Admin over at my age of empires 3 clan forums.

Link: http://ausblueseals.com.s22581.gridserv ... a53be64036

I was wondering, how can I get it to display what user group you are in, underneath your avatar and rank etc.

E.G.

Say if I am admin, I would like it to be like this.

James246
(Avatar)
Forum Rank (Depending on post count)
User Group: Administration

And then the other stuff...

How can I get it to display this?

Also, how can I make a group a default for members when they register to the forums? E.g. I want the default group for all registered users to be Forum Member. Right now, it is Registered User. I can't figure out how to change it.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

James246

You can change the name of the Registered Users usergroup in language/en/common.php:

Code: Select all

	'G_REGISTERED'				=> 'Registered users',
change it to

Code: Select all

 	'G_REGISTERED'				=> 'Forum Member',
Be sure to use a good text editor, such as Notepad++ which is capable of saving with encoding "UTF-8(w/o BOM)"

You would need some sort of mod to display the user's default usergroup on the viewtopic page.
