    I am in the process of setting up adsense on my forums and I would like to set up an account upgrade (via the xf feature) to promote users to a group that will not see ads for those that don't like them. xD

    What do I have to do, if it's even possible, to do this?

    Thanks for your help. :)

    Use this template condition:

    <xen:if is="!{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 5}">
    You need to specify the group_id of the privileged group (that will not see ads).

    Okay, so 5 = the group that users are promoted to that pay to not see ads? What do I do to add more than one group to that condition? Will a comma and the next ID work?

    I tried doing this and it was blocking the ad for my account as well (the admin account id is 3 and the new user group ID i'm trying to use is 35.) Is this something that still works for 1.2?

    The ismemberof helper has not changed.

    I just discovered the really stupid thing I was doing...I didn't realize that the adsense code actually went where ADSENSE is in the example. Once I got that right it works perfectly. Thanks :)
