    Forum Viewing Permissions is one of the groups in the Channel Permissions page. If you look they are broken up into groups and each group has a header and a title.
    Still couldn't find it, but doesn't matter:

    Very rarely do sites like "Moderators" ban users. This is typically a job handled by Super Moderators or Administrators.
    That's good to know and tells me what to do next - the appropriate moderators needed to be promoted.

    Thanks for the explanation!

    If you want your moderators to be moderators in every channel then you should set them up as Super Moderators by placing them in the Super Moderator group.

    You would edit individual moderator permissions under Channel Management -> Moderator Permissions.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I can't find this permission. Where is "Forum Viewing Permissions"?

    I went to "channel management"/"view permissions" and found "Can See Deletion Notices" in there, but in there it seems that every permission for every user for every channel is "no", which is certainly not true. I wonder if I'm clicking the wrong button somewhere...

    bootsie1 - but I'm a bit wary of doing that given the number of channels. There are 13 moderators and 50 channels, that's a lot of clicking to fix every moderator on every channel.

    If I go to channel management and select the user name from the dropdown for the top-most-level forum (where it says 13 in the following screenshot)

    Then I see the following permissions:

    Does that mean that these permissions aren't inherited to sub-channels?

    Is mine an unusual problem or is it unusual for moderators to have the power to ban users?

    AndrewSmithCWHI 's site.

    The ad integration is way better as it is not limited to first and last post, and it also works on all pages without having to repeat the first post on them.

    started a topic Moderators can't delete post and ban user

    Moderators can't delete post and ban user

    Hello

    We're running vBulletin 5.4.0. I don't know when, but at some point some of our moderators lost their ability to delete a post and ban a user.

    Here are screenshots that one moderator made while trying it on a test post:

    First is the thread as it loads up:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119897.jpg
Views:	215
Size:	47.0 KB
ID:	4393537

    Then he selects the post and clicks on the pull down menu on the right:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119895.jpg
Views:	169
Size:	52.9 KB
ID:	4393539

    Then he clicks on "delete posts" and this comes up:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119899.jpg
Views:	187
Size:	54.9 KB
ID:	4393538

    He clicks the options (which used to be labeled "spamomatic") to delete other posts and ban the user, then he clicks the blue button to proceed.

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119896.jpg
Views:	225
Size:	46.1 KB
ID:	4393534

    Then this box pops up, confirming that he wants to ban the user. He types in a reason and clicks proceed.

    Then he gets this error message:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	image_119898.jpg
Views:	168
Size:	40.8 KB
ID:	4393540

    In Admin CP, "Administrator Permissions Manager" the user has all the permissions "yes". The primary usergroup for the user is "Moderators".

    There are so many permissions i the "Usergroup Manager"/"Moderators" that I don't know what to look for. But "Can Delete Posts" is set to "yes".

    Can anyone please help me figure out what the problem is?

    The closest I could find myself is that it's possible that moderators aren't intended to be able to delete users by default. Is that the case? And if so, would you suggest that this permission be given to moderators or that the moderators be promoted to administrators?

    Thanks in advance.
