The User Group Condition

The User Group Condition is quite useful for when you need to assign a box to be displayed only on specific Joomla User Groups such as Registered users, Administrators and so on.

User Group Display Condition


In the table below you can see which options are available to setup the User Group Condition.

Name Description
Match Set whether to match or not the selected user groups.

With this option you are presented with the entire tree of all your available Joomla User Groups.

You are able to select from one to all of them just by checking the checkbox to their left.

Use Case

Obviously the most common use case for the User Group Condition is when you want to show your box only to those who belong to the Registered Users, meaning the logged in users. Those of course include not only your lowest level users but the managerial users as well.

Useful Notes

It's equally important to remember that users can belong to more than one user groups. This means that while you're using this Condition and testing things out, don't be alarmed if you see an Administrator being displayed your box while you have selected the Manager role for example. The user could also be assigned in the Manager User Group.
