It seems to only be happening in the section of the forum that only Admin can make posts.
This message has been submitted successfully, but it will need to be approved by a moderator before it is publicly viewable. You will be notified when your post has been approved.
And then when I approve it, I have the option to notify myself that I have done so. LMAO What the...

Then the group forum permission for that forum for Can post without approval is No or Never for some group you are in.

The Forum-based permissions mask on your username in that forum will reveal the problem.

It was the group forum permissions for the global moderators. Thank you Mr. Maury! Looks like everything is high and tight at least for now. I love this place.

I'll be willing to bet that was my problem I was having back in October although I'm not sure how that setting got put that way because I never had issues before. I'm not touching anything now because it's all good. Have a great day fellas!

sorry but you are incorrect about this. being admin and in the admin group and even being founder does not give you permissions to delete anyone else's posts, does not give you any moderative permissions. unless you are also in the global moderator group you can not do anything but access the admin panel if you are only in the admin group.


robert
As admin I can have moderative permissions without being member of a moderator group.

Yes, but you have to assign them to the Admin group. They are not default admin permissions. As your screenshot shows, thy are Moderator permissions. So if a user, without doing more, is in the admin group, they will not have Moderator permissions.

Normally, the installed admin user is a member of the Global Moderators and does not need to worry about this, but I have always added Global Moderator permissions to the Administrators group.

As for your post approval problem, we have seen some Host 1-Click Installs that have incorrect forum permissions for the Global Moderators groups.
Go to your Global Moderators group and give them Full Access forum permissions.

First of all: my apologies to all who may have been misled by my posts in this topic.
The founding admin is automatically members of Registered Users, Administrators and Global Moderators.
My confusion was due to my principle of being the one and only admin, giving myself Full Access admin permissions, and removing myself from Global Moderators (since these permissions were covered by Full admin access anyway) (this also reduces potential conflicts in permissions settings).

My thanks to Lumpy Burgertushie, stevemaury and Brf for correcting me in this topic (and the extra info per PM).
I don't consider myself an expert on phpBB features but I've been using it since early 2003 and it seems I unwillingly got into a state of blindly taking for granted that my setup of Admin permissions (which suits my pupose 100%) is the default, a mistake I promise not to make anymore (promises can be unknowingly broken though ;) ).

I've now got an new board on localhost (default setup) for reference. 8-)
