Check member permissions on frontend

Check member permissions on frontend

The plugin lets you perform check in ExpressionEngine templates for the permissions member has based on the group he belongs to.

  The text should be wrapped into {exp:check_member_permissions}...{/exp:check_member_permissions} tag pair and inside of it into one of bunch of conditionals (listed in the docs).

{if can_access_cp}I have CP access{
{if not_can_access_cp}I don
't have CP access{/if}

    Hi there:

    I am unable to open your zipped plugin. Clicking on it produces a second zipped plugin with extension cpgz. Same for the category_parents add-on. Am I missing something ?

    Hey there,
    I’ve successfully installed the plugin but when I try to use the tags I get the following error:
    The following tag cannot be processed:


    Please check that the ‘check_member_permissions’ module is installed and that ‘check_member_permissions’ is an available method of the module

    Any ideas why this would be happening? (EE 2.1.3)
