At the top of the page are four different tabs.

Be sure to click the green Save button before going to a different tab.

Under the appearance tab, insert the following information:

  1. You can change the name of your group or leave it as listed.
  2.  The profile page is the page they will be taken to when logged in.
  3.  The Query String is generally set up by Efinity as an internal reference.
  4. Check this box is you want the group to be listed as a forum group. It will be used for the forum system.
  5. Any user added to this group will be automatically approved and won't need to go through a registration or approval process.

Once you are satisfied with the updated information, click the green Save button.

This may refresh your page but will not close it.

Next, click the Ecom tab. (If you are satisfied with the information under any tab and don't need to edit it, go to the next tab without changing anything. You do not need to click the Save button, but can if you want to. It will just make sure the information previously listed is secure.)
