Setting a plugin feature for all users

Hello

I've made a plugin for a GL site that I run, which has 2 features - called 'plugin.view' and 'plugin.admin' (for example...)

plugin.admin belongs to an admin group, which is eay enough to assign to users.. and access to the admin portions of the plugin works correctly.

However, I want to add plugin.view to all my users, and have it added to new users as they register.

Since the All Users and Logged In Users are considered 'core' groups, they can't be modified to add this feature.

What's the 'correct' way of adding this feature to everyone who is registered and logged in? Why can't I make the Logged In Users non-core, and modify that?

Thanks..

I'd rather see plugins take care of these things (in their logic) than modifying the core groups. If that's not an option, then search for the block Blaine wrote to modify group permissions (should be available from his site).

Well, yeah, so would I.. thats why I'm posting. What feature, or function, can I use to limit access to logged in users only?

Thanks,

If $_USER['uid'] is set and greater than 1, then the current user is a logged-in user (uid 1 is the anonymous user).

Or check if the current user is in the Logged-in Users group:
Text Formatted Code
if (SEC_inGroup ('Logged-in Users')) {
...
}
