New topics with same names

There are three groups of users. How can I create three topics in the menu "Webs" (such as "Main") with the same name "HomePage", and the members of each group saw only his theme? Ie In fact it was:


But the members of each group have only seen their "HomePage" named "HomePage" (not HomePageUserGroup1, HomePageUserGroup2, HomePageUserGroup3):


And is it possible to create such topics menu using the web management (don't use console and command line (copy _default))?

You could use the IF statement, as explained in

For example, something like this might help:
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'UserGroup1'" then="[[HomePageUserGroup1][HomePage]]"}%
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'UserGroup2'" then="[[HomePageUserGroup2][HomePage]]"}%
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'UserGroup3'" then="[[HomePageUserGroup3][HomePage]]"}%

Where should I write this IF statement?

I created 3 topics in main menu(copy /data/_default ->




I have System/WebLeftBarWebsList.txt:
%META:TOPICINFO{author="ProjectContributor" date="1252892754" format="1.1" version="1"}%
 * *%MAKETEXT{"Webs"}%*
WEBLIST{" * <span style=\"white-space:nowrap\"><a href=\"%SCRIPTURLPATH{"view"}%/$name/%HOMETOPIC%\"><img src=\"%ICONURL{web-bg}%\" border=\"0\" alt=\"\" width=\"16\" height=\"16\" style=\"background-color:%$markerVAR{\"WEBBGCOLOR\" web=$qname}$marker%\" />&nbsp;<nop>$indentedname</a></span>"}%

Where i must insert
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'AccountantsGroup'" then="[[HomePageAccountants][HomePage]]"}%
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'ManagersGroup'" then="[[HomePageManagers][HomePage]]"}%
%IF{"$USERNAME ingroup 'SecretariesGroup'" then="[[HomePageSecretaries][HomePage]]"}%


If you wanted to follow the approach FlorianSchlichting outlined above, you might put those three IF statements prior to your WEBLIST tag and then exclude that web from the web list (using webs attribute in VarWEBLIST tag). You might also consider using FlexWebListPlugin to provide more control over which webs to include in the list.

A completely different (and i think simpler) approach might be to have a single WebHome topic in that web but use IF statements within that page to INCLUDE either the separate topics or hidden sections for the three different groups.
