I just started using JAF lately, and I have a problem. How can I add moderators to a specific box? I am using version 126.96.36.199
Thanks for your times
But it's easy to make someone a moderator -- but they'd be a moderator for all forums.
Create Access Mask
Log in as the Administrator
Click Admin on the top navbar
Click on Users and Roles
Click on Access Masks
At the very bottom, click New Access Mask
Name the access mask "XYZ Moderator" or whatever you'd like to name it
Check off all the checkboxes
Still under Users and Roles, click Roles
At the very bottom, click New Role
Name the role "XYZ Role" or whatever you'd like to name it
Leave "is start" unchecked
Leave "is admin" unchecked
At the bottom, under "initial access mask", scroll down to "XYZ Moderator" Access Mask and select that.
Still under Users and Roles, click Users
Find the user who you'd like to moderate the particular forum you want him/her to moderate.
Under "User Roles" check off the new role you just created.
Now that user will NOT be able to administrate the forums, but he/she WILL be able to moderate the forums. But I'm unsure as to how to restrict them to 1 forum in particular. So if you trust this person to be a responsible moderator for all forums, and just verbally tell them to only moderate one of your forums, then you can use the instructions I gave. Restricting them to 1 particular forum is above my pay-grade, for now.
Hope this helps, and if not, keep on posting questions!
