Creating Moderators

Postby UseLess on Thu Dec 08, 2005 1:17 am

Greetings,

You can create moderators in one of two ways;

individual Users

1. Visit the ACP
2. Find the section 'User Admin' on the left menu
2. Select 'Permissions'
3. Enter the username of the person you wish to make a moderator, click submit
4. On the permissions page change the 'Moderator Status' for the forums you want this person to moderate from 'Not Moderator' to 'Is Moderator'
5. Apply the changes

Groups

1. Visit the ACP
2. Find the section 'Group Admin' on the left menu
3. Select 'Management' from the options
4. Select 'Create New Group'
5. Enter a group name along with a description, if required, and a group moderator (usually you) and specify if the group is 'open' = anyone can join, closed = no one can join but they can request membership, hidden = it's not shown on the 'Usergroups' page unless your an admin
6. Click 'submit' to create the group
7. Click the link for 'Permissions' in the 'Group Admin' section
8. Select the group from the list
9. On the permissions page change the 'Moderator Status' for the forums you want this group to moderate from 'Not Moderator' to 'Is Moderator'
10. Apply the changes
11. Return to the forum index
12. Visit the link for 'Usergroups'
13. Select the group you just created
14. Add users to the group

If you want moderators to be able to ban users the you will need to install an additional mod such as;

- Yellow Card Mod - http://mods.db9.dk/viewforum.php?f=4
- Dirty Hack (for above mod) - http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/2308
- Jnr Admin - http://www.nivisec.com/phpbb.php?l=p
