Plugin Subscribe Groups 

Introduced in Tiki2

If you have allowed users to subscribe themselves to groups, you can use this wiki plugin to allow them to subscribe/unsubscribe to a list of groups. Please see PluginSubscribeGroup for a related plugin that allows a user to subscribe/unsubscribe to a single 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.
