Move inactive users to new usergroup

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (25 votes - 4.76 average) Installs: 399
Released: 10 Jan 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1358
Not Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

As of 24 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

If a member has not visited the forum for a defined number of days (180 by default) then they will be moved from their existing usergroup to another usergroup (this can be any existing usergroup, however, you should really create a new 'Inactive users' group - esp if you use the auto-restore option).

Only members of a defined list of usergroups are checked for inactivity.

If a member of the inactive usergroup returns to the forum, and auto-restore is enabled, they are automatically restored to another defined usergroup (by default this is usergroup 2, Registered Users).

Note: The move of inactive users is done once per day as part of the daily update cron job.

v3.8.001 : First Release for vB 3.8.

Is there a way to redefine "inactive"? For instance, I would like to demote my members that don't contribute, but they come on board and view or do things behind the scenes etc. I want to force them to contribute, or be allowed only to view a "limbo" forum or something. I have some people who have not posted in 2 months, but they show up a couple times a week... It is irritating.

Not unless you re-write the plugin.

Thanks Paul.

I have a question. How can I delete those users once they are moved to new group? We have over 20,000 member, but most of them do not online.

Just use the mass user prune facility in the ACP.

a member of the inactive usergroup is automatically restored to another defined usergroup only if user returns or if user writes any post??

I just installed your mod & now I cannot log into the AdminCP, I only get a redirect back to the log in screen over and over, what's the deal, I never even had to time to config the mod. How do I get back into the AdminCP or better yet, how do I uninstall/delete the xml file via FTP as I can't seem to find it in any of the folders on were vB is installed.

Very disappointed.


Ok, one of the other admins was able to get my account reset, not sure what happened, but as I was looking at the usergroup id's to config this mod, the AdminCP page changed to the login for CP & thought, well perhaps I timed out, but my account had been set to registered user & my password had been changed also. Not sure how all that ties into this mod, could be just a freak of nature, but I'm afraid to give it another go until you respond, sorry if I blamed the mod for something it didn't do, but it was the last thing I was doing when the lights went out.

This mod has no ability to change passwords. Also, unless you edit the settings it has no effect on admins/mods. Sounds to me like someone demoted you.

It appears that even though I set the usergroup id for returned users to 9 they still go into 2, the default registered group when they return.

Thats impossible unless your options are somehow corrupt - they are restored to the usergroupid stored in the mod options (ixmrestoregroup).

I'll give it a closer look when I've had some sleep. For now I had to disable it and manually run some sql to move all users out of the Inactive users group.

As you know, I heavily mod my forum, so it could be on my end. I'll run it down and get back to you anyway.

I agree; this is the function I need as well. Way too many users are lurking - I already have spiders and bots that imitate users, I don't need users who imitate spiders and bots...

Thank you, Paul

I've yet to install one of your mods that doesn't do precisely what it says on the label. First class work. Well done!

I'd really like the ability to add users from one or more usergroups who have POSTED in X days to a SECONDARY usergroup.

So, I want all super active members to be able to see a specific forum and not just the lurkers or old-time non-contributing members.

Any thoughts?
