Solved For Staff Only Use

Post by Broomhilda on December 30th 2015, 10:38 pm

I made an area for Staff only but it is saying in the permissions "all, members and administration" I need this for Moderators and Administration, and other Staff as well..

How do I do this without making all staff Administration??

Thanks in advance for your help..

Hi there,

You simply mark those usergroups that are your staff to be able to "view and reply" to the forum. Those that aren't your staff, unmark everything.

For a forum? Look at the bottom of the permissions part.

OK Thank you Draxion and Clashmune for your help..won't know if it is working until I get more staff..or get my other Admin to be a Moderator and the other staff to see if it works..

Will leave this open until I make sure it is working properly..

Hello,

Just wanted to add what you were seeing was the 'quick permissions', that is quite limited and can confuse you. For that reason I would strongly recommend no longer using that once you know what you are doing and just use the regular and advanced permissions, just manually tick every group you want to view, reply or moderate each time you create a new section. This also allows you to have full, customized control over your permissions.

Just wanted to add that.

-Brandon

Thank you so much brandon for that info..up until Clashmune looking at the bottom of permissions I don't think I ever went that far down to look at anything..lol..and I will start using that more often brandon..sent my other staff a message to have to check each staff members rights in there and see if it works..for me it will work no matter what I am lol..give me a few days to see if it is working..since the New Year is right around the corner everyone will be busy..

Thank you again brandon, Clashmune and Draxion for your help

May you all have a Happy New Year.. Very Happy
