We worked with the ingroup function of the if-statements. For that, we used the Foswiki documentation. We think it is a bit confusing because in the definition of the function, there is the keyword $USER, which doesn't work. We thought, $USER is the keyword for the current user. BUt in the example straight below you use the correct keyword $USERNAME.

I think what Crawford was trying to do, was show a 'generalised use case' and then a specific example. I've add a little more text and replaced $USER with $SOMEONE

I hope that helps smile

Group membership

To test if SOMEONE is in the GROUP:
%IF{"'SOMEONE' ingroup 'GROUP'" then="THEN" else="ELSE"}%

Or to test the currently logged in user for AdminGroup membership:
You are %IF{
   "$USERNAME ingroup 'AdminGroup'"
   then="an admin"
   else="a normal user"

I think it helps a lot that there is now a different keyword. It also helps that there isn't a $-sign anymore. Thanks! smile
