Moving user group with user upgrades?


Active member
I'm having a bit of trouble with my user upgrades. I know that the user groups are cumulative, but what about if I want to remove something for the paying users?

I'm using as a banner system, and I want members to be able to pay a small sum to remove the banners. But this doesn't work since when they pay, they will still be both in the Registered user group, and the new "Paying users" user group.

Can I remove something for a user group, or move user group altogether when that user pays? How? Wouldn't be so fun to manually move them every time.

Hmm, but will the exclusion have higher priority than the fact that the user will still be in the registered-group?

I tried adding the above tags, and it looks like this:

<xen:if is="!{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 5}">
<xen:set var="$messageContentAfterTemplate"><xen:hook name="ad_special_second_post"/></xen:set>

<xen:if is="{$messageContentAfterTemplate}">
    <xen:include template="message">
        <xen:map from="$post" to="$message" />

Still doesn't work I'm afraid. :( Will two xen:if's work btw? I tried setting only one to <xen:if is="{$messageContentAfterTemplate} AND !{xen:helper ismemberof, $visitor, 5}"> but that didn't work either.

Sorry, I don't understand this. I'm a designer, not a coder. :) This is what all of the rotating_ads code looks like. Am I supposed to put the conditionals around one of those hooks? Or is there a hook in some kind of thread-template? Searched for anything with the rotating_ads hooks, but found nothing. Would appreciate a bit of help here. Thanks in advance!

To be able to use a template condition you need to find the relevant template hook or other template code that represents the ad. I don't have that information. Perhaps the author of the addon can help you.
