add the tpl code like: {if customergroup == 2} ... {/ if}


to render visible parts as a group.

your question is not totally clear.


What information do you want to show in that customer group and, more important maybe, where do you want to show that, frontend or backend, what page?


another thing is that you are not supposed to change the core files since updating will destroy your changes. you should write your own code in the overrides or make your own module that does what you want.

Well, what you should do is override the FrontController class and pass the current customer's DEFAULT group to the smarty variable. e.g.


//  Place the following in: <install-root>/override/classes/controller/FrontController.php

class FrontController extends FrontControllerCore
 function init()
if (isset($this->context->customer->id) && $this->context->customer->id != 0) {
  $default_group = Customer::getDefaultGroupId($this->context->customer->id);
} else {
  $default_group = 0;
$this->context->smarty->assign('customergroup', $default_group);


You can now test this variable on ANY page on the site....
