Solved Groups with Admin Access

Post by kayecal on October 22nd 2010, 7:12 am

I have created 5 groups in my forum. It goes like this:

Admin
Head GameMaster
GameMaster
Forum Admin
Forum Mod

Now my question is how can I allow these groups to have access in the ACP? Is it possible?

Hi, your title not being specific and therefore not facilitating research via the search option, I'm not answering (nor is any other member ) until you change your title to a more specific one, related to your problem

Why do we ask you to use explicit titles
Code:
The forum's search engine bases its research on keywords found in [b]topic titles[/b].

When you do a research, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

Certainly not!  So this is why it is important to use titles [b]related to your problem/question[/b].  Doing this makes the researches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cordially

Sorry for not reading the guidelines well. As you stated, I've already change my thread title.
Is it fine now?

Only if you add a user to the admin group, only then will they have admin access. Other groups, cannot have admin access under any circumstances.

I see. The only solution is to add them in the admin group.

What if for example I added username: Jeff in the admin group but I don't want his title to be admin. I want his title to be "Forum Admin", is that possible?

Yes, rank administration is totally different than the groups.

Ok. Good thing it's possible and I've done it. Thanks for the help.

Another question. I've set the Admin users' color to red then Violet for the Forum Admins. As I stated in my previous post, I add Jeff in the admin users so basically he'll get the red color and admin access. Now, how can I make Jeff's name turns to color violet as Forum Admin w/o losing the admin access?

Damn! I thought so.

Giving infractions/warnings should have access to the ACP right? Is there a way that the other groups can give infractions w/o the access to the ACP? For the ban thing, I manage to work it out, but for giving infractions, I don't know how to do it.

Thank for everything buddy. Please keep this open for my future questions. Or I just need to make new threads? If that's so, close this.

Yes make new threads for each problem.
Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
