Non moderators post deletions showing in moderator log

Post by sugarycherrypie » Sat Mar 17, 2018 2:03 pm

Why is it when a non administrator or moderator deletes a post it still shows up in the moderator log? Is there any way I can stop this?

Deleting posts is seen as a moderator action in phpBB, so even when a non-moderator deletes (presumably his own) posts, it's in the Moderator Logs. I'm not sure there is an easy way to prevent this from being logged. You'd probably need a code change or extension.

Administrators cannot delete posts, BTW, other than as an ordinary user.

Unless they also have Moderator permissions

which, of course, the installer/founder of the board has because they are in the global moderator group by default.

Nonetheless, administrators qua administrators, cannot delete posts. A small point but sometimes it is good to keep the two permissions sets distinguished in your mind.

Deleting/soft deleting and editing a post are Forum based permissions which can be assigned to every user/group. Defaulted to Yes on a fresh install. Without an extension isn't possible to stop the logs related AFAIK, you can remove those permissions on a per forum/user/group basis though.

If you stop it how will you know who deleted what? Wars have been started by less. Regular users can’t see those logs anyway so what harm is it doing?

Ern...
those are Forum permissions and as I above said are set to yes per default on a fresh install to the Registered Users group.
See my above screenshot pls.

Code: Select all

"f_delete",
"f_edit",
"f_softdelete",
To add, there are the same permissions for moderators

Code: Select all

"m_delete",
"m_edit",
"m_softdelete",
So I am assuming the OP gave to some regged user those perms instead of using the forum ones? Who knows.
