With Forum Ranking System you can add, delete, or modify user ranks which are shown beneath a users name on your forum.
There are two types of ranking systems:
|Global ranks||These will appear under the users name after a specified number of posts have been made. For example, you create a rank called "New User" and assign it a maximum post number of 10. Once users have made 10 posts on your forum, they will be ranked as a "New User".|
|Special ranks||This rank grouping is assigned to the user by the administrator on the user setup page. These ranks will always be visible under the user name in the forums. They also override all global ranks.|
Special ranks are default assigned as min post setting of "-1" and max post as "-1". This is the method you MUST use to override the global settings and ensure that the users rank will always be visible.
(Note: Remember, special ranks are assign to users on the user administration page.)
