Solved Hidden status?? [SOLVED]

Post by cat2006house on January 24th 2014, 3:28 pm

Greetings,

First of all, thanks to whom that help me with this issue.

Basically I have a problem with the hidden statuses. It really really bugs me.

I am "The Sims Helper" of a Phpbb 3 forum (don't ask). Even though my title is only a helper, I am granted the rights to moderate certain sections of the forum.

The forum has a total of 5 special groups:
Helpers (without moderating rights)
The Sims Helpers (with moderating rights)
VIPs/Special Partners (without moderating rights)
Moderators
Administrators

The admins of that forum have made a lot of changes to the forum and I don't know how to alter the settings in my forum to make them similar to that forum:

Helpers: They cannot see hidden normal members' usernames, but they can see a Helper's and a The Sims Helper's username in "Who is Online" section/webpage even though that Helper/The Sims Helper is hidden.

The Sims Helpers: They cannot see hidden normal members' usernames, but they can see a Helper's and a The Sims Helper's username in "Who is Online" section/webpage even though that Helper/The Sims Helper is hidden. They cannot see Moderators' usernames if moderators are hidden.

Moderators: They can see a hidden The Sims Helper/Helper's username in the section or the webpage even though he/she is hidden. I am not sure if they can see hidden normal members' usernames though.

I know there is an option in Administration Panel for allowing/disallowing moderators to see hidden status of a member. But I do not want some of the special groups with moderating rights to have this right. That forum can, but why can't I?

P.S. I also want to know how to let certain moderators ban users while other moderators cannot.

There is not a way to limit which group sees usernames and ban members.

The hidden status is viewable to all staff groups and members who are friends with the hidden users.
