    Hello, I am using 1.5 and I cannot update right now.
    I would like to know how/where I can set a default user level (2 is what I need) for ALL newly registered users. If there is no option in the preferences, could somebody be so kind and help me figure out what code I'd need to change to make this happen? Thanks

    I should mention that in the Newly registered members OPTIONS I have it set to May publish articles and yet users are created with level 0 instead of level 2

    The Newly registered members option means that just new users that register starting from when you set that option will be set to User Level 2.

    Member that registered prior to that time would have to be manually promoted to Level 2.
