    Help with Forum Moderators Link to this post

    I'm having trouble understanding how the security tab in the main SS interface relates to the forum module. I want to be able to create a forum moderator who is able to edit and delete posts in the forum, but who is not able to access/edit the other pages in the CMS. I've created a new security group of users called moderators, and I've used the permission tab to only grant them access to "ACCESS_FORUM."

    I've tried setting the forum rank for my test member to both administrator and moderator, but neither seems to have any bearing on the ability to edit and delete posts by other users. The only users who can edit/delete posts are users with 'full administrator rights".

    Also, when I edit the user permissions, I see a tab for "Moderated Forums" - how can I add something to this list? I see in the database there's a table called "Forum_Moderators" but it's empty.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi!

    Did you ever manage to make this work? I'm having exactly the same problem. It seems that something is ‘unplugged’ in the code when it comes to give the moderator its powers over the forum, so the lack of information in the ‘Moderated Forums’ tab.

    Best regards,
    Juan

    UPDATE: You can manually add members to the Forum_Moderators table. So far, so good. The problem is that when a moderator tries to delete a single post, the whole thread is deleted. Also, Sticky Threads do not work: an error arise:
    Undefined index: NewForum
    POST /general-discussion/AdminFormFeatures
    Line 1713 in C:\..\forum\code\Forum.php

    Bye,
    Juan
