Automatically assigning users as authors

16 years 4 months ago #13644 by matthewj
When a user registers for the site and is approved, an administrator must manually change their user type from registered to author in order for them to be able to submit content. How can I make this process automatic?

found this on the joomla site (dont forget to look there..), but im sure you can edit the comprofiler.php file too and do the same.

look for line 871:

mosMakeHtmlSafe($row);
$row->id = 0;
$row->gid = $acl->get_group_id('Registered','ARO');
$row->usertype = 'Registered';

change "Registered" to "Author"

Do I change it on both lines or just one? I changed it (comprofiler) on both lines to "Authors." I registered a new user and it was succesful, but the new user doesn't appear under the CB user manager. Also, the user still doesn't have sufficient permission to submit content.

Got it - it's not "Authors." It's just "Author." Works like a champ. Thanks a million.
