  • Moderators and Moderators :)

    Hello All,

    I am new VB users – before VB I used phpbb.

    My question which is realy my problem is about moderators. I still cant understudy what is a difference between adding someday to group with moderator right and adding some body (single users ) when I manage forum (there is special option in CP > Forum management to add moderators)

    Please advice how you setup the moderators on your forum and which is the best practice

    Thanks in advance

    The Moderator group does not grant moderator permissions. Only the Add Moderator option will grant moderator permissions.

    The Moderator group is there for the convenience of having your moderators in a different group so you can grant them special forum permissions.

      Ok - thanks for help.

      Last question about moderators . I have 5 moderators - they all should have moderator permission on all my forums - i must assignee them manual to each forum ( about 17 times one by one ?) or maybe is the fastest way ? (i don’t want to give them super moderators rights )

        Yes, you need to assign them all. Or you could assign them to a parent category and the child forums will inherit them.
