  • Cant get "moderators" to view MOD forum

    ok we have a moderator lounge forum for mods.

    Sure you aren't using access masks or some other permissions which conflict/override what you've setup?

        First of all, when you added them as moderators, did you choose to move them to the moderator usergroup? Check each moderator and be sure that their usergroup is "Moderators"
        Then, goto Forum Permissions, and make sure the permissions for the Moderators usergroup under the right forum are set to "Use Custom Permissions" and the appropriate permissions are set to yes.

              Check your forum permissions for the specific forum. Make sure "Moderators" group has rights.

                  Have you installed any hacks? If you have the forum permissions set correctly and no hackss, then it should work.

                    i havent installed any hack other than that i imported users from pnPHPbb to vB using impex.

                    the thing is i did set mods as moderators for some forums and they are there, but just the main "moderator forum" which we have under "administration", there when we add mods to modserator forum it doesnt work for them.

                      If no hacks, and if in the right usergroup, and permissions set correctly, they MUST be able to view the forum. Note that their "Moderator" usergroup must be their Primary Group, not one you added them to.

                          ok lets say i have to set user "abc" to mod.

                          now i just checked the user "abc" has been added to moderators for the mod forum, but i just checked the "Primary Usergroup" for the "abc" and that is set to "Registered Users".

                          Do i have to set it to "Moderators" ?

                          If i set primary usergroup as "moderators" for the "abc" , then "abc" wont have mod permissions to ALL forums then? or just the forum i assign him moderator for?

                            Yes

                            If i set primary usergroup as "moderators" for the "abc" , then "abc" wont have mod permissions to ALL forums then?

                            No. Only if a Super Moderator.

                            or just the forum i assign him moderator for?

                            Yes
