You need to log in to create posts and topics.

Forum specific user roles

Is there a way I can make forum moderators or administrators for specific forums or categories only?

For example, I want a user to only moderate the forum "Example Forum" and no other forums. Or, I want an administrator for "Example Category" and no other categories.

Hello @jason

Unfortunately, its currently only possible to define global moderators. I plan to provide more control about permissions and roles in future updates.

In a closed usergroup it only seems to be possible to post a message having the role of moderator. However, having that role, it also seems possible for that member to delete a post from someone else? What am I doing wrong?

Hello @changes

In closed forums, only moderators can create new topics. Moderators can also delete posts of other users.

What exactly do you plan to do? You can also assign an usergroup to a forum without closing that forum. In that case normal users of that group can create topics inside that forum as well.

Thanks Thomas,

The discussions are of a confidential nature. Members / participants must be able to trust that they can communicate freely. Now we use a secure environment but less functionalities.  I also planned to protect the forum page with a password. However, that does not seem sufficient to guarantee that confidence. Perhaps there is another solution?
