Cannot Delete Moderator

Post by TheButton »

Hi,

I have created 4 different usergroups and by mistake I selected one for all the forums so they can now moderate all the forums but I only want that group to be moderator for 2 of the forums not all so if I go back to the CP and select No Role then apply it's still there, it seems like you can't get rid of it and it's there allways moderator I might have to go into phpmyadmin and delete it there, could this be a bug?

Thanks

There are a number of locations group permissions can be applied. Are you sure you've set them to no role in all of these locations for the forums you want to remove mod access to?

I go into users and groups then Groups forum permissions select the group from the drop down select all forums so now e.g. forum 1 has no role assigned but when I view forum 1 it still has moderator: the group I did select it to be moderator once by mistake now I got it set as no role assigned but it still shows thanks

"No role assigned" doesn't delete the permissions...
Go to ACP -> Forums -> Forum moderators -> select the appropriate forums -> select the groups whose permissions you want to remove (in the "Manage groups" field) and use the "Remove permissions" button.
Is that what you wanted?
