In progress How to remove individual usernames from forums?

Post by koolkat96 on March 5th 2013, 3:05 pm

Hello!

I have a problem:-

That "Moderators : koolkat96, Beastly" thingy appears in all forums except for only 2 forums.
Is there any way to remove that from there?

Un/Check the following: [] is a moderator

Hi! Very Happy

What CJ11™ forgot to say is that you'll need to set the moderating permissions again, but not for each user but for each groups. You'll have to make a group with these permissions and add the members you want (eg: koolkat96, Beastly).

Or you can hide the "Moderators" field from:
Administration Panel ~> Display ~> Homepage ~> .Structure and hierarchy ~> Display forum moderators : No.

Is there any way to make only the groups -" Administrator and Global Moderator" not appear?

I want to make only the Moderator group appear.

If I do that, does that mean that the Admin group and Global mod group can't moderate that forum anymore?

We are doing it only for the admin group, so moderators groups is definitely not modified.

Do it & check what happens? As, i think the admins groups can moderate based on the permissions in
General>Categories and Forums
Click on a forum name
Permissions tab

So just try it.

Okay! I did!

Thanks for helping but just one question........... Now after modifying this, the admin group can still moderate the forums, right?

You are the admin right? Check it yourself, whether you are able to moderate or not.

Yes they still can but it depends on the permissions of the forum that you put.

If they have the ability to moderate, they can.

Where did G moderator thing come in between? Its similar to the Moderator group. No difference.

It all depends on the permissions you give the respective groups. Confused

What do you want to achieve, because I feel you are lost. Ask specific questions as to what you want to do.

Like um, mods can move topics from here to there and they can unlock and lock topics too.

I want to know whether I can do this to the G mod group too.

Yes, whatever permissions you gave to the moderator group. Give the same permissions to the G Mod group.

Since a G Mod can moderate the whole forum, I have set the permissions fro g mod to all forums.

Now I have a question... Since now, I can't see the admins and g mods under the forums, I have to show different mods for designated forums. How to add one or two mods for one forum.

Like mods for designated forums, each user of the mod group should be in charge of a particular category/forum. How to do that?

Um, I guess you didn't understand.

For example :- 3 forums - Fun Palace, Member Creations and Introduction Room. And 3 mods :- Beastly, Tweeney and gaLa_LiannEO8.

Now, I want gaLa_LiannEO8 to moderate Fun Palace and Tweeney to moderate Member Creations and Beastly to moderate Introduction Room.

How to do that?

Is it 100% moderation based or how it appears on the homepage under the forum?

1) See, I have already told you how you should modify so that Usernames/Groups appears on the forum Homepage under the forum as well as they have the permissions to modify.


For Usernames to Appear
Users & groups>Search Users
Click on a username
Permissions tab
Check Is moderator.
Save

For Groups to Appear
Users & groups>Group Administration
Click on Edit corresponding to a group.
Permissions tab
Check Is moderator.
Save

2) You can give permissions to a group, this way it won't appear under the forum name on the homepage.
General>Categories and Forums
Click on a forum name
Permissions tab
Under Moderate: Check whichever usergroup.


Now, you can do as you like.
