    trouble with forum permissions


    I am running vB 2.29 and am having trouble with permissions.

    I have a moderator who is unable to edit/close a poll in one area. She is able to edit in other forums that she moderates, just this one forum is a difficulty. What happens is the system allows her to SEE the edit poll window, but when she submit the edit, it gives her the "You are not allowed" message. I tried logging in as her, and indeed, I cannot edit nor close the poll. I can, however, edit the poll as an admin. I cannot edit a poll in this forum ONLY unless I am signed in as an admin.

    I can edit other areas of the forums just fine logged in as admin or moderator. So, it seems like something about that particular forum. What could it be?

    Thanks. Appreciate your help.

    It's weird. I signed up as a moderator under a different username and that username cannot edit a poll in that forum only. Why would this be? What should I look for?
