This mod will let members of your forum pick a membergroup when they register to the forum. The membergroups that they are allowed to register to are configured by the admin in:
Admin / Registration / Settings / Groups that members can register to upon registration.

ALERT
Version 1.1.1 of this mod has been released. Please update to this version of the mod ASAP because a potential security threat exists in the previous versions of this mod that can lead to a new member joining any non-administrator group. A sincere thanks goes to Rudolf for reporting this issue to me.

Note: Membergroups with any of the following permissions are not selectable to be allowed by the admin due to security risks:

  • Administrate forum and database
  • Manage boards and categories
  • Manage attachments and avatars
  • Manage smileys
  • Edit news
  • Moderate forum members
  • Manage and assign membergroups
  • Manage permissions
  • Manage ban list
  • Send a forum email to members

Although the checking is done when the group is selected from the admin panel, so if the permissions are changed afterwards a group with one of those permisions can still be picked if they are on the list for groups that are selectable on registration, so be careful.
