Members can set their own title after 1 content item. Change
Please change it so that it's a (per) member group setting rather than a global setting.
I can't believe after all these years that a per-group setting for this still doesn't exist.
I think it goes hand-in-hand with the ranking/promotion system. I don't understand either.
I'll drop in my support for this. I had to come up with a very "iffy" solution where I enabled the member title edit for everyone but hid the field for everyone not in the allowed groups. Would love to see some official support for this.
Would you mind sharing?
It's basically a plugin that hooks into this class: \IPS\core\modules\front\members\profile
EDIT: I just realized thie method I used caused the content count to be set to -1 if someone without the permission saved their profile...
there are at least 2 other topics asking for member title to be tied to group. it just makes sense as groups can be set with promotion rules based on multiple attributes, including post count. therefore setting the member title by group is more flexible than by rank. also for those of us migrating from vBulletin, having no way to set a title based on group is really frustrating and unexpected.
ideally the rank title would be shown next to the pips or custom rank image (or on hover as a tooltip) and that "rank title" would NOT be the same thing at all as the current "member title".
Still not possible?
