Solved Can Moderators Ban Members?

Post by Michou on May 21st 2012, 5:20 am

Hey my question is, Is there such a way a Moderator of my forum can have the power to ban Members without having the access to the admin panel? Like is there a way to give them the rights to ban people with having the power of an Owner ?? Without having to access the Admin Panel? Please answer anyone?

Yes.

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Security
Disallow moderators to ban members: No
Moderators should see a Ban This Member link at the bottom of the first page of a member's profile.

If you disallowed them to ban then they won't be able to ban.

when you click on a members profile you need to scroll right the way down the page to the bottom Note if your looking at an admin page from a mod this will not show but if its a member and not a mod then it should show

make sure you make a mod then go look at any other member not a staff member and you should see it Wink
I will be happy to make an account on your forum and then you can place me as a test mod and i can see if i see the button for you Wink
