Solved Forum Permissions & Adding Member To Group

Post by The Swedish Sting on August 8th 2013, 3:12 pm

1. On my forum (www.thefhl.canadian-forum.com) I want to make a forum that only certain users can see.

2. How can I get someone admin rights? I made my friend admin, but she can't access the admin panel, or any of that stuff. If shes not able to, what powers does she have?

In order to only make certain people see a forum you must first create a group and modify the forum permissions so only that group can see them.

Second Question: You need to add them to the group called "Root Administrators" in order to make them an admin.

Thank you for the first one. I didn't find the second one but I found out a way. You may lock now. Smile
