Hi there.

I think I will be a bit more cautious from now on.

I do have a few more things to sort out, but hopefully it will be ok. I am hoping to install Blaine's glMessenger this weekend so hopefully all will go well.

I might ask someone to help me out next time as I need to add a few things to the new user login.

I was hoping to have an option that allows new users to automatically be set as a group member. For example: If I have a photographer come to my site I would like them to register as a photographer with a drop down menu. Then they would be automatically set up under the photographer group.

Anyway that is another subject and I will try and find out if that is possible later on.

Thank you again for your help and support.

I wrote a tiny plugin that would allow users to select from a list of groups (under My Account). This was for a network of Macintosh user groups over here in Germany. Users would get a list of all the local user groups and selecting one made them a member of that Geeklog group so that they had access to content specific to their group.

Warning: The plugin is not usable as is. Somebody with some basic knowledge of PHP should be able to adopt it easily, though.

Also, the next Geeklog release will let the admin define default groups that new users are automatically added to. But I guess that's not quite what you were looking for?

bye, Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Sorry, I only just see your post on the subject of groups. I have been adding new groups manually at the moment, but what I was hoping to do was to have a drop down menu on the main registration page so that users could sign up as a photographer etc and then they would only see what was defined in the photographer group once they had signed in.

Your plans for the next Geeklog release look good though.

You can actually modify the signup page to include additional fields, e.g. such a drop-down. This would still require some custom code, but there is an API for it, so you don't have to modify Geeklog. Search for "custom registration" - there should be quite a few posts on that topic.

bye, Dirk
