Firstly, find this line in your newbb_thread.html template:

Quote:

<{if $xoops_isadmin == true}>


<{$lang_edit}><{$lang_delete}><{$lang_reply}>


Replace <{if $xoops_isadmin == true}> with <{if $viewer_is_admin == true}>.

Voila! Moderators can now delete and edit individual posts!

very intelligent .. but i come up with a more easier way .. make another group called moderator in "groups" in admin and give them admin rights to newbb module but nothing else.. and whallla you have moderators that have admin capability on the forum boards but no other part of the site .. this includes edit , delete ect and you dont have to do the above.

In your plan, however, the Moderators have complete NewBB admin privs, which means they can add and delete forums. I really don't want to give that power out to all my moderators, so my template edit works much better for me

whats the point of having a moderator if you cant trust them with admin capabilitys ? im a sysop op cm _ for msn chat rooms and i give my host admin capabiltys over the whole chat room and the participants... even people of my own status have admin capabilitys .. i mean if you have a moderator you should pick the correct person in the first place someone with lots of posts and possibly someone you know.

Err, how do I say it...

Not all my Moderators are computer savvy, so I like to keep their interfaces as simple as possible. I completely trust my Moderators, but they could get overwhelmed with the Administration menu followed by all the options for Forum Admin; I don't want them to go through all there and end up deleting the entire forum when they are trying to lock a thread.

Maybe that better explains it.

Another reasons is that I was foolish once and one of my Moderators became upset and started to delete forums like crazy; I don't trust people nearly as much as I used to, so you'll have to forgive me for not granting them sitewide admin privs to the forums.

Great hack, I just made the change and it works beautifully!

Like you I don't want to give Moderators full admin access. That is why there is a difference between moderators and administrators.

Cheers!
