Admin edit button?

Post by lisa1302 on August 19th 2010, 1:52 pm

Hello

I don't want the mods to be able to edit the posts of our members - I had search on here and found instructions on how to set it up - so tried that to unset it (as below)

Check that the moderator's have permission to edit posts
Admin panel >> General ( Tab ) >> Categories & Forum > Hit the X/Tick and tick the "Moderators" group for "able to edit a post" then save, and repeat with other forums.


- but I cant see the option for 'able to edit a post' - I have 'edit its own messages' which is fine for people to do - but I don't want mods to be able to modify other peoples posts

Can you let me know how I need to do this please?

Thanks!

I must be seriously blind

I have clicked on the advanced button! This is what I can see:
is this the right place to be looking?! All I have is Edit its own Messages...no sign of 'able to edit a post"

What is a moderating doing if it can't edit people's posts?

We don't believe that a post should be interfered with - if a post is bad enough to need editing then its bad enough for the whole thing to be removed.
If moderators are seen to be editing bad posts - there becomes a feeling that they can do what they like on other posts and no one would be any the wiser.

No, I cant see the option that says 'able to edit posts' - can see the one to edit ones own posts - I might be looking so hard I cant see, but I pasted a screen shot so just waiting to hear if that the right place to look
thanks
