  • Mod permissions

    I have a user on the forum who I have created a sub-forum for, which is only viewable by himself and admin/mods as the information he is placing there is useful to these groups.

    OK the problem I have come across is that he needs to be able to edit his threads and or delete them. So he is set as a user in primary groups and a mod in secondary, I then set him as a mod for his forum and edited the mod usergroup to be able to delete own threads and posts. However when I look at his forum View Permissions it seems that he can now delete his own threads from any forum, which is not the access I wanted to grant.

    How can I grant a specific user permission to delete threads in a single forum, without giving the same rights elsewhere?

    Thanks in advance...

    The Moderator usergroup actually does not control Moderator Permissions. It would apply the permissions to the users of that group to every forum. It is simply a "collection" usergroup because customers wanted a "Moderator" usergroup in the past. I actually find it confusing myself.

    To control Moderator Permissions, you need to go to Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators and edit their permissions there. If they are assigned to a single forum the permissions will only apply to that forum and you can remove them from the Moderator usergroup.

      Thanks for getting back to me, I looked where you suggested, and as for as I can see I set all that should be needed...

      But as you can see from the following, he does not have the permissions for that forum.

      I don't see where I am getting this wrong.
