  • Problem with usergroup/forum permissions

    Hi

    I have a problem with some permissions (vB 229, user mask active, some change in templates but nothing heavy, no hack or anything just plain install) :

    Ok first I have a usergroup "Modérateurs forums" who has all (but attachment) to "yes" except: super moderator and control panel (both to no).

    I check and put all personnal (user by user) permission to default for all the members of my usergroup "Modérateurs forums"

    Then, i create a forum "Sysops" that is configurated with: no parent, private, no thread rating, allow img code, and all other options by default.

    The members of "Modrateurs forums" still view (and can post) in my sysops forum !
    So I go to forums permissions, I edit the "Sysops/Modérateurs forums" permission, Custum settings: all to No.

    They can still view it ! If I check for personnal Forums Acces for one of the member of "modérateurs forums", they have the "sysops forum" to "yes". I don't know why.

    And that's bother me, soon I will have about a dozen of usergroup with 10 to 30 differents users in them, I can't change the forum permission one user by one user

    Anyone know why this is happening, and what to do ?

    Sorry for misuse of english

    Moderators have access to all private forums by default. To change this you need to set their forum permissions manually to 'No' for a particular forum.

      By moderator you mean someone who is moderator of any forum on my boards ?
      Manually, you mean user by user ? Argh
      Is there a way to change that ? I suppose there is somewhere in the code a thing that say "put this to on by default" ?

        Changing this behaviour requires hacking. You can ask over at vbulletin.org.

          Thanks.
          The simpliest way to do it is here, if anyone has the same problem.

            I undestand Jérémies' confusion over the hierarchy of the group permissions settings and how they are applied.

            I have tried to get around this by denying access to the default Moderator user group by creating my own groups & permissions as I will also have several forums with restricted access except special user groups and would like to apply special moderator privelages to these forums. I can then just add users to any group I wish (?) without individually editing forum permissions. In the php??2 installation I just removed in favour of vB this was real easy to do.

            But I seem unable to apply a user group as a moderator to a particluar forum easily as the moderator feild only accepts a single user name.

            Any way to add a group as modertaor to a particular forum instead of editing user groups by individual forums? Sorry if this is a simple question but sometimes it is harder to understand when you are too used to working in a slightly different ACL structure

            Has any of this been improvements in vB3?
            Thanks In Advance

              There is currently no way to add a user group as Moderator. This requires hacking. I don't see an option for this in vB 3 at this time.
