Solved Field Editing

Post by TestAwesome! on July 9th 2011, 10:00 am

Hi,
I have had a lot of problems recently that anyone who can see special areas, or can moderate areas to do with graphic shops, etc, can edit people's fields.. They can also edit their warning bars, which is concerning, because some of my members' warning bars are going down.. And our mods aren't doing it..
Is there anyway to prevent this?! D:

Hi, that's right. If someone has moderation powers in just one forum then they will also have access to modify fields in which only moderators can as they are also classed as moderators.

Now, as long as the profile field is not editable by 'member himself' then I think it shouldn't be a problem. However, just make sure that they don't have moderation powers somewhere on the forum.

You can change the rights here :
administration panel - users & groups - special rights ,
and if you want to control user cant change the fields, change it here :
administration panel - users & groups - users - profile
click the beside the fields you want to control then change the "Who can modify the profile field value ?" to moderators , untick the "member himself"
