Re: Groups/Organic Groups

United States

Try thinking of it this way...

  • A group is a way to organize users.
  • A category is a way to organize content (such as a wiki page or blog).

Typically, I use groups to organize users:

  • by permission
    For example, members of the Editors group might have the tiki_p_edit permission and can edit wiki pages. But members of the Registered group may not.
  • by content type
    For example, members of the Group A Users group might be able to view only content that is in the Group A Pages category.

Both groups and categories are closely related to Tiki's permissions. I recommend reviewing the docs for details.
