  • Give a single user admin access?

    Hey I have a usergroup called Veterans at my forums and I want a single person in the Veterans to have admin access as he is an old admin that is "retiring". Is there a way to give only him admin access but make the rest of the veterans simply have regular access?

    Cheers in advance.

    Create a new usergroup that will have access:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Add New Usergroup

    Set all of the new group's permissions to No.

    Give that group access to the private forum:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

    Allow your existing Veterans group to have member groups:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Allow Users to have Member Groups

    Add that one user to the new group as an "Additional Usergroup":

    Admin CP -> Users -> Search for Users

    Find the user and edit their profile.
