User:Is Tag

Anything inside the user:is tag will only be rendered if the user is has a specific role.


User tags are designed for sites that have areas or features behind a login. The {{ user:is }} tag is used to check if the currently logged in user has a one or more specific roles.


We want to show some content on a page especially for authors.

{{ user:is role="author" }}
<div class="markdown">
    {{ content }}
{{ /user:is }}


We also support the negative use case using {{ user:isnt }} tags.

{{ user:isnt role="author" }}
    <a href="/apply">Apply to be an author!</a>
{{ /user:isnt }}

Super Users

While super users have permission to do everything, they do not automatically inherit all roles. Keep this in mind when testing your template logic.


role|roles string

The role(s) to check against. You may specify multiple roles by pipe separating them: {{ user:is roles="writer|editor" }}.
