Guest can delete other people's post/message

Post by ASFA Webmaster on June 9th 2010, 4:43 am

The security settings on our forum allow for guests to delete/amend their OWN posts. But it appears that unregistered guests (not being logged in) can delete other people's posts. This should normally be restricted to moderators and admins only which is reflected in the security settings. However everybody can delete / edit in the moment. Not sure where we go wrong.

Please check the settings in permissions in each forum.

Admin Panel // General // Category & Forum // Permissions () // Click Advanced Mode // Look and see edit own messages and delete own or other messages // Click Save once done and repeat in all forums if necessary.

OWN yes - OTHERS no

Post by ASFA Webmaster on June 9th 2010, 11:46 am

Thanks for the answer. did get to advanced mode... did see "Delete its OWN messages and attachments" but not "edit own messages and delete own or OTHER messages". This is what I am talking about - there no setting for the OTHER messages to be maintained! There is alwasy only OWN but no OTHERS (see attached pic)....

Any further ideas where to look??

There is no option that says Delete others messages.
Are you sure you are just looking at your guest message and not another guest message not created by you?

I am looking at another guest message (as guest = not logged in) see first screen shot providing me with all the options - edit and delete. Further I can not find the setting "delete own or OTHER messages" - only OWN (see second screen shot)
