Solved My moderator says he cant ban users - how do I set moderator permissions?

Post by jayjay23 Sun 1 Jan 2012 - 21:03

Hi guys, I hope this is in the correct section.

I recently gave a member full admin rights. And ticked all of the "can moderate" on each forum section.

However he came back to me and said "I've had a look at mod powers and the only thing I seem to be able to do apart from amend posts - is to split them into new topics - I'm going to need loads more powers like locking threads, banning people, moving threads, etc, etc."

So, two questions really.
How do I set permissions for moderators in general? Where do I locate the controls?

And, is this user (now admin) required to ban people etc via the control panel rather than the way a usual moderator would do?

Thanks in advance.

He is definitely admin - I checked on Users and Groups, Special Users - he is listed as admin.

I suppose my question though is can a moderator ban people from some sort of moderator panel. I am admin myself so I don't really know what a mod sees.

Try this: Administration Panel => General => Forum => Security => Security Administration => Disallow moderators to ban members : No. Smile
