    Edit. The same happens with admins and a just created usergroup.

  • This behavior is correct. See the tiny description under the group selection.

    "Users have to be a member of the selected user groups."? I'm using administrator account. Is illogical create a notice for every group. If I'm a member for one of the selected group I have to see the notice.


    Usually the administrators aren't member from other groups, because the administrators usually have full access for all options.

  • Maybe technically is not a bug, but in my opinion yes is bad behavior. If I (admin) want to show a notice for admins and mods... I can't.


    Examples:


    • Example A


      in User Groups
      [x]Administrators
      Guests
      [x]Moderators


      not in User Groups
      Administrators
      Guests
      Moderators


      In this case I can't see the notice.


    • Example B


      in User Groups
      Administrators
      Guests
      Moderators


      not in User Groups
      Administrators
      [x]Guests
      Moderators


      In this case users group also can see the notice.

    @Black Rider is correct here. Selecting multiple groups requires users to be in all of the groups to see the notice (or similarly an ad). This way, the system is kept simpler as you can easily setup a second notice for a different user group to achieve what you want but having a notice displayed if users have to be in two groups at the same time can only be achieved by using a single notice with the given implementation of the condition.


    PS: I will improve the wording of the language items a bit so that its clearer that users have to be a member of all selected user groups.

  • Just create 2 notices, one for admins and one for mods and it will work. :)

    I have more than 10 user groups, you think is usefull create every message for every group? If I want to show one message for Admins, Mods, Custom A and Custom B usergroups I have to create 4 messages? The logical and usefull option is group AND OR group behaviour. You are complicating a very simple option. (cc @Matthias Schmidt)

  • This is already the case ;)


    If Group = Admin AND Group = Moderator AND ... which requires the user to be a member of all selected groups ;)

    Sorry, I explained wrong. If you are member of the one selected group you can see the message. OR option, right?
