As this manual is for both Joomla and Wordpress. Please read usergroup as siterole and vice versa. Screenshots are taken at random per CMS. Also, not all options descibed here are available in both CMS systems.

Basic settings

Plugin Function
Select how the plugin will function. Default the plugin should be used as single select. ONLY in special cases we suggest to use the multi select feature (some features are not possible either).

Select singleselect type
Option to choose between Radio or Single dropdown.
With single dropdown a search form is shown above 10 usergroups (default: single dropdown).

Required
Required to select usergroup(s) during registration. (default: yes)

Show fieldgroup after
Here you can select after which registration formfield the field appears. (default: Name)

With "custom" you are able to show the field after any of the "User -> Profile" plugin fields. (see here)

Sorting of groups
How to sort (ASC/ DESC) the usergroups in the drop-down/ radio/multi-select field (default: ASC)

Show groups & Redirect

Select which user groups you would like to have visible on the Front end Registration Form. To add more/ custom groups please refer here.

Groups are cached to speed up loading time.

Note: Be careful NOT to set administrator/ Super user groups to show in the front end unless you know what you are doing or using the “Usergroup entry password” option.

Redirect

All of the menu items are listed in a hierarchical manner with the first option “set default”. You can select any menu item from the drop down field. Users will be redirected to that page after they log-in.

Note: You must ensure that the user has view permission to that page otherwise it will face an error.
Note: This works best on single select selection. ACL higher groups gain priority.

Advanced Settings

Silent groups
Users will get (and never loose) base access rights to your website. Using silent group(s) in combination with front-end groups you are able to set-up advanced ACL scenarios. (read here)

Select any usergroup(s) which will be added as a 'base' group regardless of the users' front-end selection.

Remember to DE-select the silent usergroups on "show groups & redirect" option.  (default: registered)

Front end group visibility
Set visibility of available groups a user is member of when editing their account AFTER registration. If you set it “Yes” the group fields will be visible at the user profile view page.

When you allow front end user group changing this setting must be set to “yes”. (default: yes)

Selection to show the silent usergroups the user is member of in the users' profile (edit) page. (default: no)

Group changeable
If you set this to “No” the group field will be in 'readonly' modus and users are not able to change between user groups (recommended setting)
If you want your users to switch between user groups (for any reason) then set this to “yes” and your users can change themselves in their 'edit account' profile. (default: no)

Note: When set to “yes” you MUST set the “Allowed group to change to” table!
