Solved Displaying Moderators of a Certain Section?

Post by Flame Melody on February 7th 2015, 9:21 pm

Hello, recently two new moderators have been hired in a forum I administer and I would like to know how to display them under a certain section. Example:

The original owner of the forum used to do such things, but he's currently on a hiatus so I have to do it instead. Instructions of how can I do it are very appreciated, thanks ^^.

Try going to ACP -> Display -> Structure and hierarchy -> Display forum moderators :
Check this to "yes"

Hello, thanks for your advice. I have it as a "yes" already, or else previous moderators weren't displayed in first place. But what I did now was click No, save my changes, and then went back and clicked yes and saved it. Now one of the moderators is displayed correctly. However, the second moderator isn't displayed, I don't know why. I tried doing the No-Yes step again but nothing avails from it. Any help?

Try going to ACP -> User & Groups -> Find and select either the group of moderators or the user you want to be displayed as the moderator of the category/subforum -> Then check their permissions, and make sure "Is Moderator" is checked for the specific category/subforum.

If that doesn't work, would it be possible to provide your forum's link either via PM or on this thread?

you need to make that user their own hidden in group. you need to click on his/her her name to bring up their profile then hit adminstrate user it is at the bottom of the profile page. Go to user permissions and click is moderator in whatever section you want them to moderate. That will show thier username as moderator.

I have done that since the very begin, but nothing worked. When I clicked No in "Structure and hierarchy" then saved, then went back and clicked Yes and saved again, one out of the two moderators got displayed properly. The other is still left without a display in sections:/.

Do not go to herachy, perhap s these screenshotw can help: you want to do it by adminstrating the user permissions.

Edit: Try unchecking it in a section then re checking it.

Just did but nothing worked. I'm pretty sure the Allowed Access and Is Moderator boxes are accurate, so I don't think it's a problem from there either. Sorry for being troublesome but this option didn't work either.

EDIT: It was fixed and the second moderator was displayed correctly once I unchecked and checked the exact same boxes again.
