    Losing Forum details when adding a user to another group Link to this post

    I have a website with multiple security groups, and I've been manually adding some forum users to another group for access to restricted areas. However, when doing this, I've been losing the forum fields (nickname, etc.). What's happening is that the autocomplete only autocomplete's the basic fields, and leaves the forum ones blank. After adding, it update's the user's records, deleting all of the forum fields. A workaround is to memorize the user's details (or leaving the details open in another window), and enter them manually, but that's definitely an annoying way to work

    I would submit a ticket, but I'm not sure which module is the problem here. I also wish that there were a more intuitive method of adding a user to multiple groups; for example, a group edit box in the edit user window.

    Wow I am having a very similar issue, not the forum exactly but iv extended the member object. I am hoping tomorrow to have a chance to re-write the security interface using modeladmin so that i have a list of all members then within the popup have a tickbox field which selects the groups that member is in.

    It might be a bit tricky but ill let you know how i go.

    I would think you are on the right track here. I would assign it as a CMS Security section bug as the forum (and other modules) shouldnt need to worry about this functionality and managing a user with multiple groups would be a much better way to solve the issues you have as well.

    I've submitted two tickets, Ticket #4263 and Ticket #4264. Ticket #4263 is about the auto-complete issue, which should be fixed regardless of whether there is an easier way to add users to another group. Ticket #4264 is about editing the group memberships directly.
