these seem to be admin only functions as 'moderator' in the software seems to only relate to approving or denying messages as they are posted.
in my group priviledges i have restricted their moderator status to only one forum, but if i give them the permission to delete or edit post then they can do it to every forum
is there anyway to get around this ?? thanks,

the check boxes to delete and edit post seem to be above the control of which forums cannot be moderated. is this how it is supposed to be or is it some sort of bug??

as you said, he can delete and edit in the forums he has access to, and in the General group he has access to all. either something is wrong with my logic or its the logic of the software, lol. anymore suggestions ??
TheOne wrote:yes, as far as i can tell my permissions are set up as they should be. as was stated, the delete and edit post functions are avaliable to all forums that a person has access too, so if he is in the general group then he has access to all. i cant seem to find a way to limit him to just one forum. i even tried setting the moderator group as a sub-group of the general group, but none the less since he still was a member of the general group he could delete and edit post. it seems the
on a related note, i am not sure of the function of the "cannont moderate these forums" permission as they do nothing to limit the delete and edit functions if a person has access to all the forums. the only way is to restrict access, but that would mean he couldnt post.
it seems to me that the delete and edit post functions are not attached to the "cannot moderate these forums" permission, which since they are a part of moderation they should. if you have any other ideas, please let me know, otherwise i hope this is fixed in the next version
