just because you're a super mod doesn't mean you're a mod. you set moderator status just like normal

but Super Mod = Mod of all forum...so what this one does is it makes you have the control panel thingy?

for those are looking for an alternative to super mod, maybe you can look at the Admin Panel for JR Admins and Mods MOD.

Please don't mistaken me for trying to "steal users" over, but as a user myself, i don't feel secure/comfortable myself installing this mod when i know there is a rather disturbing bug present. i wish to help fixing this bug, but my knowledge is limited. :roll:

OK, I did this BUT it requires your constants.php file to be edited then the levels of the moderators and super moderators to be manually altered! If you want to know how, email me, and I will send you the info.

You are probably suffering the long standing problem that when you alter a members permissions, all the supermods become normal mods. This only seems to occur when you set your supermods to mod forums (either a single forum or a supermod user group with all forums).

In the staff file it uses this code

Code: Select all

$sql = "SELECT * FROM " . USERS_TABLE . " WHERE user_level !='0' ORDER BY user_level"; 
so this means first user level 1 then 2 then 3
1 is Admin
2 is Moderator
3 is Super Moderator
that's why Moderators come above the super moderators

or am I wrong :?:

Thats correct.
If you want Super Moderators to come above moderaotrs you need to either... re-write the script... or

Code: Select all

 you need to edit your constants.php 
 
FIND -----
define('USER', 0);
define('ADMIN', 1);
define('MOD', 2);
define('LESS_ADMIN', 3);
 
REPLACE WITH
define('USER', 0);
define('ADMIN', 1);
define('LESS_ADMIN', 2);
define('MOD', 3);
And replace all moderaotrs user_levels with a 3 and all super_moderators with a 2....
Easiest way... use phpmyadmin.. unless someone can write a script to do it.

FYI: The Following Query should do the Trick: UPDATE phpbb_users SET user_level=3 WHERE user_level=2

Afterwards you have to change your Super Mods manually back from Mods to Super Mods.

Hey everyone just working on code

Post by helppleaseforums »

Everyone I'm just working on code to allow Super Moderators to access the modcp.php file (which allows Lock,Unlock,Delete,Move)

I'm also working on making the Litte Pic's for Lock,Unlock,Delete,Move,IP,Split(Or IS Spilt Move? :? (No it isn't:)))

Hope to have it in MOD Database format very soon i'll post it ASAP :)

I would like to offer an idea to the makers of the 'JrAdmin' and 'SuperMod' mods.

It seems that both mods are altering and verifying privs through the 'user_level' variable, by adding a new level.
(9=JrAdmin or 3=SuperMod)

I would suggest that because of this, code elsewhere in phpBB2 is overriding those values when user/group permissions or group memberships change.

Would it not be possible, and perhaps more effective, to instead create and use a NEW FIELD in the 'users' table to signify that the user is 'Jr/Super' ???
In this way, other phpBB2 code would certainly not alter the given field, though the rest of the 'Jr/Super' code would need to be written a little differently to query for that field when it does lookups to see if the user has the required privs.

Just a thought.
