    Default Is this possible? Parsing News Based on Usergroup

    Hi again.

    My site feeds the front page news from most of the subforums. But instead of dedicating forums for news threads, I'd rather just allow the discussion to happen naturally and restrict what goes on the front page by usergroup. So, for example, people with x# of posts/rep/days registered/etc are the only ones whose threads go on the front page.

    Is this even possible? I imagine you could do it with some conditionals such as:

    Code:
    <if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 5)"> ---parse thread</if>
    I'm mainly asking because not all vb variables/etc seem to work with VBA.

    It wouldn't be as simple as that. You'd have to modify the query that pulls the news, which could get very tricky with users in multiple groups and such.
