Add-On Type(s)



The Get Member Group plugin takes in a username or screen name and outputs a corresponding member group.

Get Member Group was written primarily as a way to get member groups to display in the forum module underneath an avatar. Basic usage is as follows:

@{exp:get_member_group name=“Ben”}@

By default, the plugin will search based on screen name. For usernames, set the ‘from’ parameter:

@{exp:get_member_group name=“CrazyGRL1985” from=“username”}@
