Choosing Default Group for a Member

Post by phio69 on June 17th 2010, 1:46 pm

hi, everyone.

I have a question for my forum at forumotion.

let's say I have a member. he offers to help as moderator, but he can also help with graphic designing so I decided to add him to the administrator group as well. I want to make his default group to be moderator not administrator (so his user name color will be green not blue like administrator) but I can't find a way to do this.

thank you very much for your answer. Razz

Just click on the moderators group and you will see something like Add Member, to the left type his name and click add. + delete him from administrator group.

the thing is, I'd like to still make him an administrator. so he will be a member of both administrator and moderator group, but his default group is moderator.

Then make a fake administration group, without that member in it and put in the real one but make sure it's HIDDEN. Then put him in the moderator group. That way, he'll look like he's a moderator but he will still have administrative powers. Smile

Or..
add him as the moderator for the moderators group.

from groups administration

Group Moderator : HIS NAME HERE.

and add him in administrator group too.

this is currently how I set things up. I thought by making him moderator of moderator group it will be his default group, but it's still blue, which means he's still shown as a moderator.

well, no problem. it doesn't matter that much, hehe~ ^^

This is the only way possible at the moment
