Solved I have a problem involving Admin ranks. (Solved)

Post by InnerSolace on March 4th 2012, 1:34 am

So, I went ahead and added a friend of mine to the Administrators group. His username is red (the color I defined as the administrator username color), and he can access the Administration Panel. However, if you look at his profile (http://trueduels.forumotion.com/u2) then you can see his rank appears as "Member." I did indeed add a custom "Member" rank, but since he's in the Administrators group, shouldn't his rank say "Admin"? I basically need help with changing it to where anyone who is defined as an administrator shows it in their profiles and posts.

Also, while I am posting this topic, I will also mention that there is no "Moderator" rank in the Rank Administration options of the Administration Panel, yet there is a "Moderators" group. I've made other sites using Forumotion in the past, and "Admin" and "Moderator" were always in the Rank Administration automatically.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I have never run into this problem before.

Go to his profile in the administration panel and scroll to the bottom to add the admin rank.

Create a rank for Moderator.

I think you have to create the ranks yourself. That's what I did.

AP- Users and Groups- Rank Administration- Add new Rank

From there you can add the Administrator Rank and Moderator Rank and any other ranks you choose. You have to go to a persons profile in the AP to give them the specific Rank.

Oh, and be sure to set the Admin and Moderator Ranks at Special Rank, or else everyone will have that appear. Razz
