In progress Missing delete post button for members and permissions problem

Post by TonnyKamper on October 28th 2017, 6:00 pm

Hello all,

I would like to report a missing delete post button for regular members, the button displays fine for admins and moderators.
Permissions are set correctly and were tested when the forum was created, at that time all buttons displayed fine for members.
I got a message a few days ago from a member who asked me to delete her post and when I told her she could do it herself by hitting the delete button, she told me there was no delete button displayed for her.. which was strange because everything worked fine for a long time..

So I went back to my testforum and saw the same problem occurred there, no delete button (X) for the member:
Display from member side:

As you can see here members have permission to read, write and delete their own messages:
Member permissions:

EDIT: Missing delete post button is solved !!

A second problem with permissions is that viewing IP address permissions is set to Admins only and still the IP button displays to moderators also now while it was working properly and was tested when the permissions were set.

View from moderator-side:

Set Permissions:

I tried everything I could think of to fix this.. checked all permissions again, even disabled javascript temporarilly to see if one caused this problem, but it was still the same.. I have no clue of how long this problem excists because I had no previous requests to delete posts.. so if it's related to the hacking attack to Forumotion servers from a while ago or to the recentDatacenter Maintenance I don't know..

Forum version: phpBB2
Forum address:
The big question now is how can this be fixed ? Confused

I'll be gratefull for any help..
Kind regards,
Tonny Kamper

Well, I can see it fine. Are you and this member both using Chrome?

I'm using chrome, I don't know what browser my member used right now.. but for testing I used the account you're currently using on the Avant browser and did not see the delete button on my post as a regular member.. as far as the moderator seeing the IP button while it's set to only be viewed by admins she uses Opera..

I am using Firefox, and I saw the delete button image.

For the other question, could be give me access to the AP?

Thanks.

I notice that in the section where I can moderate I can see the IP button, but not in the section where I can not moderate.

Well isn't that strange @SLGray ? Because the permissions are strictly set for the IP button to be viewed by admins only.. I don't want my mod's to be able to see members Ip addresses

I believe if a group can moderate a section they can see the IP address button since that helps with moderation.

But at the special rights section where you can set the permissions for this, you can choose between Admins and Moderators.. why have this choice if it isn't supposed to work?

That does not override the permissions (moderate) section.

Ah okay @SLGray thank you very much for all your assistence thumleft
Do you think there could be a way to acchieve that, maybe with a script ? Because the members of our official site need to be assured of their privacy, taking to account that they're all very traumatised people..

There could be a way, but I do not have the knowledge to create something. Maybe someone would know and reply.
