Just wondering really - if it is possible to edit the functions that can be carried out by a moderator. For example, when you tick the box to make a person a super moderator, they are then allowed to edit, close, delete, move, pin etc.
What I'm curious about is if this can be changed so that they can only open, close and pin? I'm also looking to set it so that moderators cannot view the I.P. addresses of members. I can't see any settings that would allow this, but is it possible to manually edit the code? Or is this not allowed? Thanks for any assistance on this.

Being a 'moderator' on an ocPortal website is just being a member of the 'Super Moderator' usergroup. You can therefore use the normal permission setting mechanism to set what you need (in the Admin Zone, look under the Security section - specifically, 'Specific permissions').

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
