Difference between Moderator & Administrator on Forum Role settings

What is the difference between Moderator & Administrator on Forum Role settings in the edit user options?

Does the Administrators have more capabilities than the moderators, and if so what are they?

Hey @jacovh3,

yes, administrators have more capabilities:

  • access all categories (even if not assigned the right user group)
  • can edit the structure of the forum, usergroups, ads and settings
  • can change forum roles of users (moderators can only ban or unban)

Moderators can basically only get capabilities in the frontend like:

  • edit, move and delete posts and topics
  • check reported posts
  • can only access the categories that they are assigned to

That are the main differences between an admin and a moderator.

If you ever wonder how to return the favour for helping you.
