Non-joined user

Hi

Is there any way to ban a user from one forum or the forum group without having to change the individual users group please?

Thanks
Phillip

No. The default usergroups feature is designed for this situation. For the sake of example, let's say you're trying to ban someone from a 'Debates' forum. You'd set up a 'Debates' usergroup and only grant that usergroup access to the forum. You'd then make that usergroup a default usergroup that everyone automatically enters when they join. Whenever someone needed to have their access removed, you'd remove them from the usergroup.

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

A member may be in multiple usergroups, yes. To add a member to a group, view a usergroup and you'll see there's a form to add a member.

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking in your second question. However if you are asking about automatically making a member be in a variety of usergroups when they join, this is done by making a usergroup a 'default group'. That is done on the add/edit screen for the usergroup you want to make a default.

There are many different ways to do this under OCP. You can have new users assigned to groups by default on joining, or give them a list of groups to select from they optionally can join. Optionally Email is sent to group leaders for those groups. You also have a variety of permissions etc and you really need to carefully look at the OCP documents around security and the permissions tree editor. In relation to earlier posts remeber you can reassign a member from any group to any other and also set the primary group as opposed to secondary group. The points system also moves people around groups. Play in the admin pit and see what happens or yr test system. :o
