  • en user changer action remove groupName
    Just give an actions name.

  • Action
    Choose the Action "Remove User Group"!
    Just write a message if you need more actions!

  • Source User Group
    Select the User Group, where your User is at first to start the Action.

    The function based on the Register Date!


Check proper function

If you want to check correct function, just add a new User with the Source User Group.

You have already seen how to simulate the cronjob on settings site!



Currently the Users "Register Date" haven´t exceeded the actions value so now action should be executed:

en user changer settings cronjob result


Please change the "Register Date" to an older date which is outside the actions value and execute the URL again:
(You cannot modify at the moment this value in the Joomla! Backend!
You can choose an older User or you modify the register date directly in the registerDate column of the #__users Table inside the database!
But have a look for the right syntax!)
