How to set up user promotion

Today we are going to discuss a way for you as a site owner to set up the promotion system. This system allows you to automatically “upgrade” your members. (NOTE: This is different from the trophy system.) So let’s say you have a new user and you want them to change user groups automatically after 10 post to the group Junior Member. You would use the Trophy system for this. So how do we do this you ask? Well let’s start and I will show you.

So let’s start first log into your admin control panel and navigate to users. You will then see on the left hand side User Group Promotions like so:


When you click that you will see this page:


So this is where we create and manage our promotions. So in the top right hand side you will see Create New User Promotion. Click that and you will see this screen:


So I’m calling this Junior Member. I will add them to the group Junior Member as well make sure that you have a group made, so that you can support these promotions. After you do this you need to click Apply this promotion while located at the top like so:


It will take you to this page:


Now we have to select our requirements for users to be apart of this group.

Privileges and Status:  This allows you to set what initial requirements are needed. For the purpose of this tutorial we are going to set user state to “Valid”

Next section is User Group You can set what you wish member group wise. For this one I selected “User is a member of one or more of the following groups” and I selected registered members.

After that is Content and Achievements. This allows you to set specific guidelines. For example “User can join if they have x amount of posts. It automatically added them into the group. So I selected this option and checked “User has made this many posts” So I set it for 10 posts.

You can also set user specifics such as Facebook, or user name.

So set everything that you need and at the bottom of the page select “Save Promotion” You should see this:


There ya have it! You have set up Group promotions! If you have any questions as usual ask away!
