Plugin Subscribe Group 

Introduced with Tiki 2

If you have allowed users to subscribe themselves to (join) a group, you can use this wiki plugin to allow them to subscribe/unsubscribe to a specific group. Please see PluginSubscribeGroups for a similar plugin for subscribing/unsubscribing to more than one group.

Security and permissions 

  • A user must have the perm tiki_p_subscribe_group to be able to see the box
    To set this permission go to Settings > Groups
  • The group must be set as being a user choice
    To set this configuration go to Settings > Groups

 Security Caution

Using this plugin, any registered user will be able to access any group provided that the group has "User Choice" checked in the settings for the group at Settings > Groups.

Usage notes 

  • If you use this plugin with the plugin GROUP, be careful that if GROUP is used first, the change will not immediately be shown. GROUP used after SUBSCRIBEGROUP will be fine
  • A module with a filter on the group will be affected as soon as the group is changed

Examples 

Basic 

This code:

{subscribegroup group="Editors" subscribe="Subscribe to %s" unsubscribe="Leave %s" subscribe_action="Name of subscribe submit button" unsubscribe_action="Name of unsubscribe submit button"}


Would produce:

Advanced 

It is possible to make a link to toggle from subscribed/unsubscribed status to some group called GroupName by creating a link to a page which contains this plugin and adding the following parameters:

group="GroupName&iSubscribeGroup=1&subscribeGroup=text"

Example:
http://www.example.com/somepage?group=GroupName&iSubscribeGroup=1&subscribeGroup=text

Of course, this works if the user is logged in, and GroupName needs the correct spelling and capitalization.
