Description of problem

Hey

So im developing a forum and I've noticed that moderators can delete any post, the thing is, i don't want moderators to delete posts and move them to the "failbin" (basket) so it can be used as evidence instead of deleting them, and in case in the unlikely event they go rogue, start deleting all threads in sight and possibly even deleting important threads like the rules thread

I have done all i can to remove all traces of the moderation option, i have deleted images of the delete button, and gone into templates and removed deletion options, but the deletion option is still visible in the Quick Mod Tools

Admin Panel -->> General -->> Categories and Forums -->> Forum -->> Permissions

Go into the forum that contain the threads you don't want them to have the power to delete or even mod for that matter, and "un-check" the box that says "Moderate" on the permissions of that forum.

The thing is, my "Global Forum Rules" thread is located in my "General Discussion" sub forum, and of course people would be posting in general discussion, i also have rules for certain sub forums, this is not a workaround i can utilize.

Moderators can go rogue, and i'd rather get rid of all the damaging options before something like this happens.

Then do what I said and make it happen for every forum you have. "Un-check" all the boxes for Moderationon the permissions in every forum.

No because the thing is, if i uncheck "moderate" then they will not be able to moderate the forum, I want them to be able to moderate, just not delete

Please do not double post unless they are seperated by 24 hours or to add something on to your issue, we have other people to help as well. Please use the edit button instead.

Hello,

Unfornatelly there is no definitive way to remove moderation options using the default options available in the ACP (Admin panel). If one has moderation permissions for a forum, then one can use ALL actions available to moderators of a forum.


All I can recommond is that you don't add anyone as a moderator that you can't fullt trust. Get to know a user well enough, where you know the possiblity of them going rogue is slim to none.

All im really looking for is some sort of CSS or HTML that can remove the "delete" option from quick mod tools, i have erased delete everywhere else (removing delete button icons from my forums theme and editing templates to removed it from the MCP) but theres no way to remove it from quick mod tools.

Hi @lolsalad26906,

You can use this CSS to hide the delete buttons in topics :
Code:
a[href^="/modcp?mode=delete"], a[href$="mode=delete"] {
  display:none !important;
}
( this is for all members )

and if someone happens to get through to the delete page you can use JavaScript to redirect them :
Modules > JS codes management > New

Placement : In all the pages
Code:
if (/mode=delete/.test(window.location.search)) {
  window.location.href = '/';
}
( again, this is for all members )

If any questions or you just want it for specific users, let me know. Wink
