Title: Is it possible to make ‘joinable groups’ mandatory?
Post by: New_User on May 25, 2019, 03:57:47 pm
(Pls note - decided to create a brand new post for this as its an entirely different question - hopefully doing it this way will be more helpful to other users too)

So...

If the admin of the forum wants to set ‘groups’ to appear on registration, AFAIK any new user who registers with that forum has no obligation to join any group.  Atm the actual message a new user gets is:

“This is an optional choice - if none of these are appealing to you, simply skip it!  For multiple selections, hold down the Ctrl key.”


Thus a new user can join no group or more than one group - its entirely up to him/her. However this presents a problem as my forum will have the options "male" and "female" on signup. I don't want this to be an optional choice, as it will make monitoring my forum much more easier knowing who is a female and who is male


So following from this, my questions are:

- Can I make joining a group MANDATORY at signup and if yes, what setting would I need to change to do this?

- Is there a way to make the group a user originally registered with - such as male or female - appear next to his / her name whenever that user makes a post, rather than just saying newbie which is what I'm currently getting?

- Is there a way to disable CTRLmultiple selection so a new user is forced to click EITHER “male” or “female” but can't click both?

- Is there at least a way to remove or change the message on registration stating ‘this is an optional choice?’

Thanks in advance for your help!

Go to Admin -> Layout Settings
And check "Hide post group titles for grouped members:"


The other ones not at this time.
