You can have mods or admins in more then one group.
then you just have to set the permissions accordingly for the group.
If a admin is in the group too, then their powers will stay the same, so if you have mods already and you wish them not to have powers for that group, then be sure not to place them in there.

Just make a group and then set the permissions for the group to be moderators,

when you make a group you will have to set each forums/board permissions for that group. so you set the permissions for the group as you see fit.

forget the whole other thing about having members in more then one group if that confuses you, but it's pretty much self explanatory.

other then that give me your forum link, explain what forums you want the group to have permissions to be able to ban for and the name of the group your creating.

That confused me. Could you elaborate?

That means what ever forums the new group has permissions for to moderate/ban.
You do not want to have your regular mod group to have the same permissions for them sections of the new group you are creating.

Now if you do want some of the regular mod group to have the same permissions, then simply place their user name in the new group as well.

it's all in the forums permissions my friend, you will see the groups to set them for as you create them or the ones you have now.

now let me guess, they are the same color of one group you dont want them to be... lol Razz
if that happens then you have to set the group order correctly, but we will burn that bridge if it happens and once you get the above inquiry right first Smile

So what are you saying you want to make a group for your moderators caslled forum security.

You have to set the permissions for each forum.

First create the group, then add the members you want to the group.
Now go to

Admin panel>general>forums

You have to click on the forums one by one and set the forums permissions for that group. you will see the group come up when you click permissions.
So you have to do it one by one.

How ever you can always set the permissions for one forum. then go to the next and just click copy forum permissions from the previous board you just set.

I have no other way to explain it,

read here it has it all step by step.

Yes, that's correct. The group just needs to have moderation powers somewhere on the forum and they will be able to ban. Is this problem solved? Smile

The only way they can access the basket forum would be to have the direct link to the moderation panel for the basket. If they have access to that then they can moderate everything in there.

Other than that, there is no other way. If you still feel uncertain then you could just create a completely empty and hidden forum somewhere on the forum and give them powers there instead of the basket. Wink
