Topic: Can't set default group after using User Management plugin
To stop the influx of spammers I've been receiving, I setup an Unverified group as the default with no posting access. Everything was fine.
Then I used the User Management plugin (1.3) and:
Prune by: Registered date
Minimum days since registration/login: 7
Maximum number of posts: 1
Delete admins and mods: No
User status: Delete only verified
with the above, it deleted over 100, but there was only 5 in the last 7 days. Switching user status from Delete only verified to Delete any deleted more.
Essentially it deleted anyone with a 0 post count, which is a separate problem, but it caused the problem below.
My problem is now new users are suddenly not put into Unverified - they are put into Members, which gives them access to post.
I've deleted the Unverified group and created the same group - same problem.
I've deleted that group and changed the name to something else and made it the default group - still puts new users into Members.
It should be noted that I can manually change their group from Members to Unverified.
