Default Switching GAB off

This is a quick little bit about one of the features in GAB : The ability to define usergroups that can toggle ads on and off.

This is a great way to encourage premium subscribers as you can enable them to have a lovely, ad free environment in which to play with.

Step 1: Create a custom profile field.
Using your admincp, create a new custom profile field for your users. The one I have created here uses the following settings:

Title: Adverts?
Description: Turn off those pretty ads?
Options: naaa, Yup (each on a seperate line)

Step 2: Set GAB to check this value.

Edit your GAB settings and choose which usergroups can toggle the ads off.
At the bottom of the usergroup list is a combo box filled with the user profile fields. Select the one you just created and in the value box below that, enter the value that determines if ads are off (in other words: Yup).
One common mistake is to enable usergroups to toggle ads off, and then leave the profile field and value empty which generally results in: whoever has their Bio field blank wont see ads! As you can see - this is a silly mistake.
