Solved Report post to Admin Moderator Icon

Post by Guardian-Angel on March 21st 2014, 1:58 pm

Hi everyone

Can you please provide me a link explaining how to choose the Icon's that are available. Registered users do not have a "Report post to Admin Moderator" Icon in their posts.

The Admin's and Mod's do have it. Is it a setting somewhere that I'm not seeing for registered users?

I can see all the available icons in Display -Pics Management -Advanced but I don't know the steps to use them.

Thanks for your help.Smile

The only choices are Administrators, Moderators. There isn't a choice for Registered Users.

ACP < General < Reports <Configure <Report Status <Members<Save

This added the "report post to Admin Icon", but it also added a lock post for new reports. What is that for?

Hi Very Happy

I believe that feature can only be used for moderators who can moderate the topic. I'm not sure though, lol. I tried it on this topic and I ended up having no rights to lock it o.o...

Hopefully, someone can explain, lol.

The Lock iconis unlocked, but it doesn't look like it originally did. It was originally locked. I can't report posts! How can I fix that?

Is there any way the Users can have the "report post to admin"icon but not the "lock post for new reports" icon.

When I clicked it, it prevented me from reporting posts. I don't want the users clicking that by mistake then having to reset everything.

Thanks Smile

Sorry for quoting myself. I added Admin, and I'm back to normal.
ACP < General < Reports <Configure <Manage Users<Add<Admin<Save

However, I would like to know if I can omit the "lock post for new reports" icon for the users only. Is that possible? If they click that, they are locked out of reporting posts. I'm not sure what the purpose of that would be. Thanks

Hi Very Happy

Now that's the part I do not know D: Some staff, please explain @.@ ...

By the way, if you want it omitted, I think we can do it via Javascript but I won't make a move until a staff says so (Considering it might violate TOS, not sure).

Hello Guardian-Angel,

Locking a post for new reports prevents anymore reports being made for that post in particular.

Example :


The post above the locked one can be reported to administrators, while the post below will not have the ability to be reported anymore. As you can see there is a locked, and unlock icon. Clicking the unlock icon will open that post for new reports.

You can manage these icons under :
Administration panel > display > pics management > advanced > buttons

But it is for the user to use correct? If a user reports a post, does it lock that post only,preventing other uses from reporting the same post or preventing that same user to report it again because they forgot or they think 10 times is better than once? Very Happy

Otherwise I don't understand why users would be able to use the lock feature.

Thanks! Smile

If a normal level member clicks the lock button, they should encounter the following message :


The feature is for preventing members from reporting a post more than once.
