[GP] Template-Helper for Usergroups

Shadab

BASIC USAGE
==============================

The basic syntax for using this helper in a template is:
{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, X}

Replace X with the usergroup id you want to check. This X usergroup ID will be searched in primary as well as secondary usergroups of $visitor. The helper returns TRUE if the $visitor belongs to the usergroup; and FALSE otherwise.


SAMPLE CONDITIONAL
==============================
Code:
<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, 3}">
	Hello, Administrative user!
</xen:if>

ADVANCED USAGE
==============================

(Most users won't ever need to use this)

The advanced syntax for using this helper is:
{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, <type>, <ids>}

<type> => The usergroup-check type. 3 options are available: ALL (default), PRIMARY, and SECONDARY. ALL is the default type & you don't need to explicitly specify it.

<ids> => A comma-separated list of usergroup ids.

You can pass any number of usergroup ids. The helper returns TRUE if it finds a match for any usergroup id passed. So essentially, the helper works like a boolean OR if multiple ids are passed to it.


ADVANCED SAMPLES
==============================
Code:
<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, PRIMARY, 3}">
	// User whose primary usergroup is 3
</xen:if>

<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, SECONDARY, 3}">
	// User whose secondary usergroup list includes 3
</xen:if>

<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, 1, 2, 3}">
	// User who belongs to usergroup 1 or 2 or 3
</xen:if>

<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, PRIMARY, 2, 3}">
	// User whose primary usergroup is 2 or 3
</xen:if>

<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, SECONDARY, 1, 2, 4}">
	// User whose secondary usergroup list includes 1 or 2 or 4.
</xen:if>

<xen:if is="!{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, 1, 2, 3}">
	// User who does NOT belong to any of the listed usergroups
</xen:if>

Hi,

i got a problem. I use this Addon for an Secand "Staff" List. So I put the following Code under the first / original Staff List Code:

PHP:
<xen:if hascontent="true">
	<div class="section staffOnline avatarList">
		<div class="secondaryContent">
			<h3>Staff 2</h3>
			<ul>
				<xen:contentcheck>
					<xen:foreach loop="$onlineUsers.records" value="$user">
						<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, 16}">
							<li>
								<xen:avatar user="$user" size="s" img="true" />
								<a href="{xen:link members, $user}" class="username">{xen:helper richUserName, $user}</a>
								<div class="muted">{xen:helper userTitle, $user}</div>
							</li>
						</xen:if>
					</xen:foreach>
				</xen:contentcheck>
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
</xen:if>
But this shows me every Registered user online and NOT only User who belongs to Usergroup 16.

Has anybody an idea?

Thanks all!

Please change:
Code:
<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $visitor, 16}">
to:
Code:
<xen:if is="{xen:helper checkusergroup, $user, 16}">
Because passing the $visitor variable to the helper would check the viewing user's usergroup, and not the user (stored in $user variable) you are looping over.

This mod works better for me because I can use groups NOT in a particular group, or vice versa. Also, I think the first post should be updated with the NOT groups just as a quick reference. I easily missed it the first time because I found this through search.

Also, perhaps in the package, put your folder inside a "library" folder. This helps noobs understand where the GeekPoint folder goes.

Thanks for this mod. I can't run my site without it!
