Automatic group based on age

1. - My site has no adult content, so its ok if <18 sign up.

2. - Members less then 13 are not allowed to register.

4. - When registering, members have to enter their birthdate.

5. - Everyone between 14 - 18 years of age that registers, how can I put them into a "Youth" group automatically?

6. When a member turns 18, how can they be moved to a full member?

The "Youth" group has already been created and permissions tested. I just do not want to go through thousands of members checking birthdates.

This same question was posted on, and I was referred here -


Would it be possible to do this with a scheduled task that ran at midnight? Something that would check the birthday and compare it to the current date. If the result was < 18, user gets moved to youth group. If the results was >18, if in youth group, member gets moved to full member.

Do we have a name for this modification? After a few searches I could not find anything.

My site is running 3.7 RC3

searching "usergroup" "All Mods" "Titles Only" brings up this mod which is probably what Marco was talking about: Add User to Primary Usergroup Based on Value of Custom Profile Field

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
