Random groups having moderator permissions?

Post by TR on June 8th 2010, 4:32 am

Users in any closed groups of mine are able to change profile fields that are exclusive to moderators. Does anyone know why this is?

Thanks!

Did you set the group so they can moderate forums?

Check the permissions of your profile fields(if the member can modify the profile field value):
admin panel>users & groups>profiles>click the 'modify'>on the 'field edit', check the permissions of 'Who can modify the profile field value ?': set it to 'moderators' only>save changes

Do this to all profile fields you want mods only to have the permissions to edit fields.

Hey Agent/Zoids-
All of the fields are set to that, and their still able to change it. The groups don't have any moderation powers, either.

Sanket- I believe that members in the group are able to edit any of the profile fields, even the custom ones I've added for pets and so forh. I'll send you a test account now Smile
