    Those are all administrator functions, not super moderators.

    It depends on how your groups are set up.

    By default, Administrator are also Super Moderators (eg. the usergroup has Can Control Panel = Yes and Is Moderator = Yes).

    If your Administrators are Administrators only (eg. only Can Control Panel = Yes is set), they will not have any moderator powers on frontend (if they are not specifically assigned as a moderator in a forum).
    So if you want your administrators to have Super Moderator powers then you must make them also members of the Super Moderators usergroup in this case (or turn Is Moderator on).

    so i took my co-mod out of the administrator group, and left her in the super mod and mod group, but for some reason she let me know there was a bunch of things she could not do anymore, so for the moment she's back in the admn group...

    anyone know what's up with this ?

    No, Administrators and Super Moderators have the same forum permissions (All Power). Super Moderators have more permissions than Moderators...so what would be the point of adding them to that group?

    Ok so ONLY super admins can create other Administrators (and set their permissions).

    Thanks!

    Super admins can access this page:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions

    Super admins also have full admin access in the Admin CP regardless of their permissions on the above page.

    You would have to manually add them to all forums or categories (moderators of categories get mod access in all child forums of that category).

    Ok so super administrators are set using the config.php file.

    The different between a admin and a super mod is the admin has access to the admin panel (there are admin level permissinos also).

    The different between a super mod and a mod is the super mod is a moderator for ALL forums, while a mod has one or more forum moderations rights.

    So is it possible to give a moderator the same privledges as a super moderator (by giving the moderator access to ALL the forums), or is there somethign else a super mod can do?

    (Is this in the docs somewhere?)

    Typically the first user created is the one with all the permissions and can control permissions for other users, including Admins. This is listed as the Super Administrator. You can add other Super Administrators by adding their userid to the Config.php file in the section for Super Administrators.
