    What it Does:
    This simple add-on does what the name implies: allows admins to clone another user group. It copies permissions, CSS, and any banner settings you may have set in the user group you want to clone. Select the clone link, enter a new title for the user group and press the Save User Group button.

    This tool can also be used to clone a specific user groups permissions that will be used to create another user group off of (to ensure no duplicate permissions). Just clone the user group, and before hitting save, go from top to bottom setting all those that are set to Allow, to Not Set, and those that you want to give, to Allow. For example: clone the Registered user group to create a Supporters User Group. This way you can see what the previous permissions were and adjust the Supporters user groups, accordingly (no duplicate permissions, and no need for an excel document to keep track of permissions).

    This add-on does not copy user group node permissions. See related resource listed below.

    Thanks for taking the time to write this add-on. A lifesaver for those of us that don't fully understand the way the Xenforo usergroups system works. Working well on 1.5.6.

      Thank-you for taking the time to review this add-on. It has already saved me a lot of time, and will come in handy when I put my roster add-on online that supports guilds. :)

      Thanks for the review. Just FYI I know how to set XF's permissions, they are accumulative, and as such straight forward to set up. I created this add-on as a time saver for admins that are going to create user groups that are parallel to each other, ie: for RPing sites that have numerous areas that are accessible to specific user groups only.

    This saved me a lot of work. If you have have many user groups with their own forums and sub forums this is helpful. The built in permissions are solid for most forums, but they are not a one size fits all. Thanks for sharing this modification.
