States whether a resource is a member of a resource group or groups. You may specify either a string name of the resource group, or an array of resource group names.

This method is available with MODX v2.3 (most likely not in a patch release)


API Doc: http://api.modx.com/revolution/2.2/db_core_model_modx_modresource.class.html#\\modResource::isMember()

boolean isMember (mixed $groups)


Get a resource object:

$resource = $modx->getObject('modResource', array('id' => 2));

See if the resource is a member of the 'Marketing' resource group:


See if the resource is a member of EITHER the 'Marketing' or 'Finances' resource group.

$resource->isMember(array('Marketing', 'Finances'));

See if the resource is a member of BOTH the 'Marketing' and 'Finances' resource group (by default it's enough to be in one resource group to get back true).

$resource->isMember(array('Marketing', 'Finances'), true);
