Solved Moderator vs Administrator

Post by scrumpyjack May 18th 2010, 2:48 pm

I am the Administrator I have at present one Moderator but in his, the Moderators profile, it says in his user level he is an Administrator. So what does that mean exactly?
Is he equal to me?
I want to be the governing body of my web site albeit he has permission to ban, remove posts and generally 'beat' people up for ubruly and wrong conduct. I want to be the ONLY person to give people the right to join the forum.
So again is there a difference between an Admin and a Mod? and if there is where can see what these differences are please?

Is he in your 'Administrators' group and have you created a 'Moderators' group with the relevant permission / rights?

I think your find that you should just need to change the ranks on your admin page
to do this go to Users & Groups then * Search user type in the name of your Mod click there name your see there profile come up
Go to the bottom of the page you will see Special admin-only fields
make sure he/she is set to Mopd and not Admin
as long as you have not added him/her to your admin Group then he /she will only be a mod and not get in to your admin page

Hope that has helped

ok you need to do this
Go to your members profile click on Administrate user : Profile
Then click on
Moderator vs Administrator Untitl26
Change it to Mod
please make sure your in Advanced mode this setting is on the left hand side of your forum then you will need to go to your Permissions
tick each box you wish for your mod to take care of then save.

He's name should then be in blue on the main site.
