Solved Change displayed usergroup for founder

Post by Bloodhound1958 on August 5th 2012, 10:13 pm

I am the Founder of the forum and Administrator. Is it possible for me to be displayed as a moderator or simple member while maintaining founder and Admin rights?

In addition to that, the order of the moderator groups should come before the administrator group. So that your username takes up the color of the moderator group.

How will that effect the other Administrators who I'd like displayed as such? It's only me that wants to display myself as a regular member.

Sanket: I'm afraid I don't know how to change the order as you've suggested. Can I change the order for my username only and not make the admin group hidden?

Yes, it will affect the other administrators. However, you can create a new group named administrator & add those other admins to that new group.
Then the order of the groups would be.
1. Administrator[New Group][ Includes the other admins]
2. Moderator [Includes you]
3. Administrator [Original + Hidden group] [includes you as well as the other admins]
To change the order, you just have to click on modify corresponding to the group & change the order.

Hope you understand, what i said.

I follow you. When I create the new Admin Group how do I give it actual admin permissions like the original?

Also, do I need to remove myself as Group moderator for all groups so I'm displayed as a member?

You want to be a member or a moderator? First post said, you wanted to be a moderator.

The new admin group you will create is just a dummy group, so that other admins get that color. They will also remain in the original hidden admin group as i mentioned.
