Solved More than 1 usergroup able to ban, thats a problem.

Post by **N@ME?!?LE$$** on January 6th 2011, 2:10 am

I have 3 mod groups
Commanders=admin
Majors= global mod
lieutenants=normal mod
i want Majors to have the power to ban, not lieutenants, they should only have the power to mini mod like, deleting and editing double post...
there not moderators or anything, but they still have the power to ban, when i allow mods to ban, why is that?

You can't pick and choose what "powers" or permissions mods/admins have.

What are you talking about, the problem is one group should be Mods and be able to ban, not both.

Let me explain the groups:

You have two mod groups:


  • Majors

  • Lieutenants

The majors can ban, and moderate the topics(Lock,move, etc)
If you place Lieutenants as mods too, they all share the same powers. You cant make Lieutenants mod and then decide to yank the ban power. You can't do that. They all share the same powers. If you place the groups as mods, they all do the same thing.

I am sorry

The Highest Rank= Commander, Which Is me
Major=2nd highest
i want the majors to be able to go to ACP, to do this you go to Users&Groups, then search a user, then click there name, then go to permissions, and change user to admin

but after changing the permission to user to admin, it puts the major as a commander and a major, but i still want them to be a major, how do i fix that.

You would need to put them in the main admin group and then change the rank in their profile to Major. Don't put Admin.

The rank doesn't switch their color. You will need to put them in the group that is Major. Groups make usernames color.


So if you want him to have admin panel access you must put him in the admin group (group 1).

  3. place all the staff members in your admin group then make a 2nd group and call it the same as your admins group name
  4. then go back to your admin 1st group and make sure it's on hide so no one can see it.
