In progress how to set what options a moderator has

Post by Flappypaddles on July 23rd 2012, 7:36 pm

I only want moderators to be able to move or lock a thread and not be able to delete anything. can the icons for delete, merge split, basket etc be hidden from moderators?
I also dont want them to have access to the IP info or the delete post icon.
I don;t normally have mods but I am going on holiday for a while and need someone to keep an eye on things and move anything suspect to a hidden section if the need arises for me to deal with when I can log in.

Hello,

Hide IP from mods:
ACP > Users & Usergroups > Special Rights > Set permissions for IP to "Administrator"


To edit moderating settings for mods, you need to go to ACP > General > Forums & Categories > Perms (of each forum)

Be sure the ACP mode is on "Advanced." Now edit the settings you wish the Moderators group to have or not have. Unfortunately, you'll need to repeat this action for every forum.

And you might also want to edit their ability to ban, if you haven't.
ACP > General > Securty > Disallow moderators to ban users

thanks that works for viewing teh IP and removing posts, but is there any way that I can stop mods from splitting, merging and sending to the basket as well.
I really only want them to be able to move a thread

Hi, it's not possible to 'limit' what tools mods have access to. All mods will have access to all the tools and this cannot be changed sorry.
