How do I create ranks?
Assigning your member's ranks allows you to structure your group extremely well. There are two types of ranks: 'Set Ranks' and 'Post Ranks'. Set Ranks are set by you or another administrator, once you've assigned a rank to a member then the rank will no longer change. A Post Rank is assigned based on the number of posts this member has made throughout your website, which means you can reward members for posting on your website with an increased rank.
To create ranks, click the 'Members' tab in your Admin Panel, then click 'Ranks' in the left menu. At the top you will see where you can add/edit/remove Set Ranks and towards the bottom of the page you can add/edit/remove Post Ranks. You can also assign a certain color and a 'badge' for each rank, so for example you may want to have all administrators display in the color red because they are an important person.
Set Ranks also have another nice feature. If you tick the 'Team Member' option and then specify a 'Tag', then this tag will be placed at the beginning of all the members who have this rank, which makes it easier to determine who has what rank. Ticking the 'Team Member' option will also place these members in your Roster.
To change a member's rank, you will need to edit their profile. Just visit their profile and click 'Edit' at the top. All the administrator options/actions are at the bottom of the profile edit page.
