Changing members' ranks in WSF 5.0


Dec 9, 2017
Great though the WLab software is, the online manuals leave much to be desired and plugin support can be challenging, not least because much of the plugin chat content is in German, but that's another matter.
I wanted to change a couple of member ranks, so created a new rank for them, added them to a new user-group, but was unable to assign them to the new rank in spite of help in their forum. In the end I bought the Set Your Own Rank plugin, restricted all the permissions to admin only and voila, ranks changed.
I'm still puzzling over why such a simple task is so difficult on default.
