  • Prevent modarators from moving threads

    Do I have the ability to prevent my moderators from moving threads to a certain forum? That means they will still have the ability to move threads to any other forums except that forum.

    I don't believe a Moderator can move a thread to a forum they do not moderate. Check the appropriate Moderator permissions:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Show All Moderators -> Edit

      The Moderators can move any thread from the forum they moderate to any other forum! What is use of moving threads then if they are moderating only one forum?

      My question is that how to exclude a certain forum from moving threads to it. But it seems that I can't do that.

        Are you saying they can move thread from and to forums they are Moderators of but you don't want them to be able to do this? If not, then I don't understand what you're asking.

          Suppose that I have 4 forums on my board: 1, 2, 3, and 4. Forum 1 has a moderator called 'A', forum 2 has a moderator called 'B', 3 & 4 have no moderators. Now moderator 'A' can move threads from forum 1 to any other forum. He can move threads to forums 2, 3 & 4. Modarator 'B' also can move threads to forums 1, 3 & 4, but of course he can't move threads from those forums to forum 2. Is that right till now?

          What I want to do is to exclude forum 4 from the moving permission so the moderators can move threads to any other forum except that forum. So in our example moderator 'A' can move threads to forums 2 & 3 only, and moderator 'B' can move to 1 & 3 only.

            Sorry but that confused me. Is moderator 'A' a Super Mod? Is forum 1 a parent forum with subforums? If so, what are the subforums?

              No, suppose that there are no super moderators there, and forum 1 has no subforums. I hope that the picture is clear now.

                I just tested this out and Moderator does have permission (using the default permissions) to move a post from a forum they moderate to one they don't moderate.

                  And..? My question is how can I exclude a certain forum from moving threads to it, just like forum 4 in our example.

                    Not without modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

                      Ok thanks. I was just asking if that could be available from the control panel without modifing the code.
