 Mod Warn Permissions?
#
Just a quick question:

So I want mods to be able to warn users. I have mod permissions on in the Warning System setup so that's done. Is there a way to just globally allow all mods to warn? I have all my mods in a user group, but I can't find it under group permissions. I can't seem to find a way to give them permission to without going into ACP moderation and changing permissions on each individual mod.

And on the off chance I have to change them individually, if I have one mod on two subforums, do I need to give them permission on both subforums or if I do one will that give the mod permission?

I just checked for myself and it does appear that you have to do it per member, rather then for the member group as a whole.

I'm understanding your setup like this: You have a "moderators" user group, but this group is not set to be a "super moderator." Instead, you have individually assigned people in this group to various specific forums; and the forums they moderate are all different.

In this instance, yes, you must individually configure each moderator's permissions per forum as well.

Yes, that's the setup I have! Okay, follow up questions then.

(1) If I have a category with subforums below it and I assign a moderator to the category, do they automatically have access to everything within the category or so I need to assign them to each individual subforum?

So like:

Welcome Area - assign Mod1
- Info
- Rules
- Chat

Would Mod1 then be able to moderate info, rules, and chat as well?

(2) If Mod1 isn't a super moderator, but is given warning permissions, can they can warn any user on the site (minus protected groups)?

It needs to be assigned per-forum including all subforums. Assigning to a parent forum does not make them mod of all subforums.

They can technically warn any user on the site when given warn permissions but I believe the system requires a user to have posted in their moderated forum previously.
