  • Here's a quick question about SuperMod

    Can a supermod physically remove a message?

    Yes. Supermods have all moderator permissions.

      Wow, that was quick!

      Since you're still up at this time, can you please refresh my memory on where is the permission to force mods to do soft delete only? I'm having a case of brain fart and can't remember where I set it. Thanks!

        Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators -> Edit -> Can Physically Delete Posts

          I am having trouble with this - My moderators are classified as Super Moderators, so they can moderate all forums. However, when I go to Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Show All Moderators -> Edit -> Can Physically Delete Posts, I can only choose Edit for a few forums on a list. How do I control their ability to delete posts from forums they haven't specifically been assigned to, but they have permission to moderate?

            As said above, Supermods have all permissions - you can't control them as you can with normal moderators.

              Thanks - I thought the question above was about Super Moderators.

              I suppose I'll have to assign my moderators to all of the forums to limit their ability to physically remove messages then?

                  It is kind of inconsistant. They have moderator privileges on all forums but they're only >>Assigned<< to certain forums.

                  I think it is a bug/missing feature that you have to assign someone as a moderator of every forum to control how they delete posts. It's almost MORE important that they NOT be able to physically delete messages in forums that they're not assigned to moderate!

                  Something less kludgily written than:
                  [X] Allow physically remove messages from forums this user is not an assigned moderator of.

                    Id like to know why we can restrict a moderator from hard deleting a post but the VB guys wouldnt add the restriction of letting them delete the attachments!

                    Whats the sense in saving the post if the attachments are gone???

                        No, no direct options.
