    I'm trying to restrict Cometchat to those who have already been MANUALLY validated, and no one else. How can this be done? I tried various things without success. Any help, or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hmm...after a bit of research, looks like any state other than "valid" receives permissions from group 1 (unregistered).

    Hmm....still not working. I disabled Cometchat via usergroup permission and also put this in PAGE_CONTAINER:

    <xen:if is="!{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 1}">
    <link type="text/css" href="/cometchat/cometchatcss.php" rel="stylesheet" charset="utf-8">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/cometchat/cometchatjs.php" charset="utf-8"></script>

    It does NOT work and it still shows to members who have NOT yet been manually approved.

    Help please!

    Make a new group.

    Then add only those users you approve to see code.

    That would be better.

    The permissions for the group can be the far left ( no ?)for everything as your custom coding it :)

    Hmm....well I have 1350+ approved members so manually assigning each of them to a new custom group would be very tedious. I do already have a custom group that all approved members are part of. I'll tinker some more!

    Still can't figure it out. :(

    So Can you elaborate more on what manually validated is? Vs automatically?

    Certainly. My forum is set to allow registrations, but I also set it so I have to "validate" any new accounts so all new registrations are in the state "Awaiting Approval".

    I want to show certain code only if a user is NOT in the state "Awaiting Approval".

    Is there is a conditional for "is Awaiting Approval"?

    If you are referring to users which appear here: admin.php?users/moderated

    That would be a user state of moderated.

    Which is? :D

    However, I suspect what you actually want to use is user_state.valid.

    I tried: <xen:if is="{$user.user_state} == 'valid'"> and still doesn't work. Can you please elaborate?

    I can't make any sense of it. Is the variable in question available in template PAGE_CONTAINER?

    The guide explains exactly how to check that.
