Access While Board Disabled?

Post by MattF »

I noticed that as an Admin, I can still access my forum while it is disabled. This makes sense as an Admin...

But during my update to 3.0.6 I had my board disabled for a couple hours, and I noticed one of my moderators had made 3 new posts during the time it was disabled.

Do moderators have access to the forum when disabled? And is it full access? And can that be controlled or turned off or something somewhere?

Thanks.

Does that moderator have any admin permissions? Check, using the permissions mask.

No. It's just a standard moderator with the Global Mod permissions for managing bans and warnings added.

I've noticed this aswell, in fact while I was upgrading once in the past one of my moderators sent me a PM! While the Forum was disabled, the disabled message only seems to appear for users who haven't set it to auto log in. Or perhaps only moderators and above

I've only used 3.0.4 but since the beginning Admins & Moderators (with no Admin permissions) have always been able to access a disabled board, I assumed that was as designed.

From my experience, only my moderating staff have access to the board while it's disabled.
Admins, Global/Super Mods/ and standard moderators.

Once you give someone moderator permissions, they will have access I think.
