Notes on usage

  • The {ELSE} part is optional.
  • The groups and notgroups parameters may be used at the same time.
  • Groups can be included in other groups, and this can impact how this plugin behaves. For example, if you want a section to be seen by the group A and the group Admins ( groups="Admins|A" ), and not by group B ( notgroups="B" ), be careful not to include group B in the Admins group . If Admins includes A and B, Admins will not see the section.


Basic syntax

{GROUP(groups="Registered|Admins" notgroups="Editors")}show this content for users included/excluded from groups specified in the parameters{ELSE}otherwise show this content{GROUP}


Use of this plugin to hide sensitive information will not prevent it from being revealed to users with permissions to view or edit the page source. Users that have a Watch on the wiki page will receive an email with the entire wiki page source, thus revealing the information regardless whether the content would be hidden because of this plugin.
