User titles are the descriptions of a user that are displayed under his or her username in a post. These titles will often refer to one of three things:
- The user’s amount of activity on the board (examples: Junior Member, Senior Member). This is usually set through the default user title ladder that is described in the User Title Manager article.
- The user’s relationship to the board (examples: Administrator, Moderator). This is usually set through a usergroup-specific user title that overrides the default user title ladder.
- A custom title, specified by the user. This can refer to anything the user desires. The user may not have permission to set their own user title; it is controlled by a usergroup permission. More information about Usergroup and Permissions can be found here
