How to Change a Member’s User Group in phpFox

This article will show you how to manually move a member from one user group to another.

You will come across a time when you will need to manually change the user group a member belongs to.  This could be due to the fact that you want to promote a member to your staff user group.  You can do this easily via the admincp.

Login to your phpFox admincp, and select Users > Browse Users.


On the Browse Users screen, select the drop down arrow to the left of the user you want to edit and select Edit User.


On the Edit User screen, scroll down to the User Group field and select the user group you want to move the member to:


When you have finished modifying the member’s user group, scroll to the bottom of the page and select Update.

You have successfully changed a member’s user group via the admincp!  This member will be able to login normally, and will now have access to more or less features of your website, depending on the settings for the user group you have moved the member to.
