This screencast explains how to use AND and OR groups in Rules to configure more complex conditions. This is demonstrated by creating a rule that notifies administrators when content is promoted to front page using an OR group. (The same procedure can be used to create an AND group.)

The screencast covers:

  • How to combine conditions
  • How to create an OR group
  • Some advice about the order of conditions
  • How to delete reaction rules
  • Why you shouldn’t use the “send e-mail to all users in a role” action
  • Why it might be useful to have messages printed out when configuring complex rules
