Forum Permissions



These permissions are set for each forum/user or group combination individually. They can be divided into two types: User permissions and Moderator permissions. The first control if a user or group can see the forum, post in it, and so on, while the Moderator permissions control if the user or group can do moderator-related actions in it.

3.7.2.1. User Forum Permissions

User Forum permissions are those which apply to creating and editing ones own posts in a particular forum and printing and reporting topics. They also determine whether posts require approval or increment the post counter as well as some other user capabilities in a particular forum.

User Forum permissions can be assigned to users by clicking Users’ forum permissions from your ACP Permissions tab, selecting a user, selecting one or more forums from the list, and then selecting Forum permissions from the Select type dropdown.

User Forum permissions can be assigned to user groups by clicking Groups’ forum permissions from your ACP Permissions tab, selecting a user group, selecting one or more forums from the list, and then selecting Forum permissions from the Select type dropdown.

User Forum permissions can also be assigned to both users and user groups by clicking Forum permissions from your ACP Permissions tab, and then selecting one or more forums from the list. This option will display the all of the users and user groups who are currently assigned User Forum permissions for that forum. You can add, edit, or delete users and user groups from this option.

In either case, you will be allowed to select a stock Forum Role in the role dropdown, or you can click Advanced Permissions to customise the permissions, or, preferably, create a new Role having the permissions set you desire.

3.7.2.2. Forum Moderator Permissions

Forum Moderator permissions are those which apply to editing, deleting, or otherwise affecting other users’ topics and posts in one particular forum, or to affect other users through reports, warnings, or bans.

Forum Moderator permissions can be assigned to users by clicking Users’ forum permissions from your ACP Permissions tab, selecting a user, selecting one or more forums from the list, and then selecting Moderator permissions from the Select type dropdown.

Forum Moderator permissions can be assigned to user groups by clicking Groups’ forum permissions from your ACP Permissions tab, selecting a user group, selecting one or more forums from the list, and then selecting Moderator permissions from the Select type dropdown.

Forum Moderator permissions can also be assigned to both users and user groups by clicking Forum Moderators from your ACP Permissions tab, and then selecting one or more forums from the list. This option will display all of the users and user groups who are currently assigned Forum Moderator permissions for that forum. You can add, edit, or delete users and user groups from this option.

In either case, you will be allowed to select a stock Moderator Role in the role dropdown, or you can click Advanced Permissions to customise the permissions, or, preferably, create a new Role having the permissions set you desire.
