Mass change of users in groups

Mass change of users in groups was created by thisisjohn
Hi,
I recently migrated from Joomla! 1.0.x to Joomla! 1.5, requiring a migration of existing users.

In doing so, all users were loaded as members of the 'Author' group (I can't remember why - it seemed to be the only option available).

I would like to move most of the 'Author' group to the 'Registered' group, but can't seem to find an obvious way of doing this (forums, Google, plug-ins, etc.).

Have I missed something? If so, please respond to this topic with the solution.

Thanks,
-John

You'll need to perform an SQL query in phpmyadmin in order to move their usertype.

UPDATE `jos_users` SET `usertype` = 'Registered', `gid` = '18' WHERE `id` NOT IN (id,id,id);
UPDATE `jos_core_acl_groups_aro_map` SET `group_id` = '18' WHERE `aro_id` NOT IN (id,id,id);

Substitution id out with your moderators IDS. Exmaple: 62,68,92

This is untested query, please ensure you have created a backup of your database before executing it. Change the jos_ prefix as necessary.

Hi Kyle,
does this work also on last CB release.
I need to do a similar query to change user groups but it seems to me the table is Jos_comprofiler (not Jos_users anymore) and that the gid variable isn't store there.

i need to do something like this:

Select * from jos_comprofile where FIELD1="BASE"
UPDATE jos_comprofiler SET GROUPFIELD="Author"

Thanks!
Cristiano
