Hi,

If a user in VB is attached to primary usergroup and a secondary usergroup. which usergroup does Photopost considers for the user for applying permissions ?

For example, I have 2 user groups: 1. "Group A" which is primary group 2. "Group B" is secondary group.

In photopost permissions "Group A" has upload limit of 1 picture every day and 2 MB space while, "Group B" has upload limit of 3 pics/day and no space limit.

In VB, initially user is member of "Group A". After a user makes say 50 posts, Group B is added to the user as his secondary group. So now user is member of "Group A" AND "Group B"

Question is, what permissions will user get in photopost?

Hope I am not confusing :)

Permissions are set by taking the greater of the values for any group the user belongs to (we dont change usergroups in any manner). So, take the higher values for each item of Group A and Group B and you have your users profile.

Since we read the usergroups the user belongs to at the time they are using the site, any changes made by vB will be instantly used by PP.
