  • Allow moderators only to post - registered users to reply

    Sorry if this has been asked before - new user

    I have a specific forum where I want only the moderator to be able to post threads but allow registered users to view and to reply to the moderators thread and vote etc.

    I have set up forum permissions so that registered users cannot post threads, but can reply and vote in polls etc.

    I have set up moderators of this group so they can post new threads in this forum and pols etc.

    I logged in as the moderator and tried to post and got the disallowed message you would expect the registered users to get if they tried to post.

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    is the moderator a global mod or just for a particular forum? I'f it's just for a particlular forum then you will need to make them moderators in that forum too.

      The moderator is specified as a specific moderator for this forum - They are also a moderator for other specific forums where I do not impose post restrictions on registered users.

      Looking at the logic I thought I had it covered but I am obviously doing something not quite right.

      Can you explain what you mean by a global mod (moderator?)

        Admin = God, can do almost anything
        Supermoderator = what you ask above i.e. can moderate all forums and categories
        Moderator = can only moderate on the fourms/categories for which they are a moderator

        You need to set Admin/Smod/Moderator usergroup to be able to post in that category, but registered users can only reply to existing threads.
