I'm trying to create panels that are visible or show up on pages specific to certain groups. I'm using Organic Groups 7.x-2.7 on Drupal 7.34. So, our company's technicians would only see panels specific to them and the same for office staff. I'm having an issue integrating Panels with Organic Groups. When setting the "Selection Rules", "Visibility" or any other value for a panel to the group of the User who is viewing, the option to select the group is there and selectable BUT it only shows up as an empty string and the panel doesn't abide by this rule. I'm pulling my hair out and eating it in a mad attempt at proving to the gods of drupal code that I am worthy of a solution.
I changed my Organic Groups installation to version 1.5. This seems to work. I'll try each version incrementally until I reach the first one that breaks and just place it here. I still have no idea why this is occurring, though.
