Edit this user in Mod CP

Post by master412160 » Sat Aug 03, 2013 2:59 pm

This feature inspired from MyBB allows moderators to access the user data. Could be useful to remove spammy links in signature or edit other info that a moderator should be able to access at all times.

It could be a breach of privacy if abused but then again it is part of the MyBB core and there don't seem to have been any issues or complaints about that ability for mods to edit users. :)

I don't want phpBB to be 100% like MyBB.

But this is just a big + for moderators and them performing moderation tasks. ;)

If you give your moderators Can Manage Users permissions, then they can edit a user's info in the ACP.

I agree with Brf. You can extend a moderators permissions to allow them to edit the details in the ACP. Would essentially be the same thing. No need to add the same feature twice.
Always use the Support Board for phpBB support. One PM answers one. One post answers many.

Then this should be a mod permission not an Admin Permission.

Nope.
Functions in the ACP have Admin permissions.

It's not by chance that it's called "User administration", not "User moderation".

Apart from that I suspect master412160 was not meaning the same in the first place, but only editing a user's profile, signature and avatar, whereas user administration includes much more.
