Group Name Indicator 7.0.0

   (21 reviews)

3 Screenshots

Show a legend of your groups in the Who's Online and Recently Browsing widgets, sorted in the order you specify and linked to the search system. Handy so that people know what those group prefixes and suffixes mean.


You choose which groups appear in the legend, and the order they will appear in, with the plugin settings in the ACP. Group links will carry any group formatting (colors, etc.) you may have set. Clicking the entries in the legend takes users to a list of all members with that group designation.

Version 6 is for Invision Community 4.5 and above. Tweaks the &q appendage slightly - this is tested but environments vary, give a yell if there are problems.

Version 5 is for IPS 4.4.5 and above. Untested on earlier versions. Version 5 addresses changes within the IPS search subsystem that now REQUIRES a query parameter to be passed through. GNI urls now append a "&q= "  - and yes, the space after equals sign is intentional and necessary. If you edit the plugin template files, do keep this in mind.

What's New in Version 7.0.0   See changelog


  • With Invision Community 4.6.7, IPS added JavaScript controllers to both widgets that insert your name to the front of the Who's Online or Recently Viewing lists. This appends your name to all UL elements, and that would of course include the UL list of group names I insert which is why you guys were seeing your user name popping up in the group legend. This also now includes a tiny css file to account for the now-necessary formatting. RTL and LTR languages directions supported.

Shoot me a PM if there is a problem.

It works as expected, without any issues, and without any unnecessary toggles, text, or anything else.  Simple and straightforward which is what I prefer.

Great plugin. Simple and easy to use. I'd love to see a similar plugin where user names are displayed on the forums, their profile, etc with the group styling.

Works just as described, right out of the box. Great plugin, as per usual.

Does exactly what it is built for. Displays user groups as a guide, no more wondering who is who. Good Job! Well built.

Worked great before IPS 4.4.5, tried patch for 4.4.5 and it still throws me on advanced search page when I click group in legend. Hope will be fixed soon 🙂

UPD: Nevermind, I am idiot had modified template, works good.
