The User Title Manager allows you to specify user titles based on post count. When a user reaches the specified minimum post count their title will be changed. User titles are an indication of status on the forums and are displayed below names in posts and in their User Profile. The term 'ladder' is used to describe the hierarchy of the titles.
The User Title Manager displays a table of the user titles based on post count available on your site. Above the table is a note that you should update user titles and ranks after adding, editing and deleting user titles. Clicking the link in the note takes you to the Maintenance panel. For more information on this panel, consult the Maintenance article.
If a user's usergroup has a user title specified (see the Usergroup Manager article) then that user will have their usergroup's title instead of the ladder of titles in the User Title Manager.
The table displays the User Title, Minimum Posts, and Controls for editing or deleting the user titles.
- The User Title column displays the text entered into the Title field in the Add/Edit User Title form.
- The Minimum Posts column displays the text entered into the Minimum Posts field in the Add/Edit User Title form. This is the minimum number of posts for a user to receive this title. They will have this title until they make enough posts to be moved to the title with the next highest minimum posts value.Note:The post count checked against the minimum posts value is the value stored with the user. Therefore, posts in forums that do not count posts will not have an effect.
- The Controls column contains a dropdown with two options: one to edit and one to delete the corresponding user title.
Choosing the Edit option will open the Add/Edit User Title form for the corresponding title.
Choosing the Delete option displays a confirmation screen asking if you are sure you want to delete the title. Clicking the No button will cancel the operation and return you to the User Title Manager. Clicking the Yes button will delete the title. This action cannot be undone.
