AB Member Categories lets you link custom member fields to category groups.

AB Member Categories lets you link custom member fields to category groups. It’s a simple concept - but also a very powerful one. If you think about it a category group is just a list ... it can be a list of member groups, a list of teams or any other kind of category you’d like to put your members in.

You can link as many member fields to as many category groups you want. For each linked field, members can be put in either one or multiple categories.

AB Member Categories has tags that can be used for advanced permission checking like in this example:

{if logged_in}
    <h1>Hi {screen_name}</h1>

    {exp:member_categories:check field="member_category" category="super_admins|priority_members"}

        {if mc:belongs_in_all}
            <p>You're both a super admin AND a priority member - how is that even possible?</p>


        {if mc:belongs_in_any}

            <p>Wow, seems you're either a super admin or a priority member! We'll embed some goodies for you:</p>



        {if mc:belongs_in_none}
            <p>Doh, you're just a regular member aren't you?</p>
