Admin Permissions

On my site I am in the administrators group, but there in one forum it appears I do not have admin privileges.

I can edit my posts, but when I click on the thread tools dropdown my only option is delete thread.

In all other forums I can also edit thread.

What must I do to be able to edit threads in that forum as well?

There must be custom permissions set for that specific node:

Admin CP -> Users -> Node Permissions -> [click the forum]

Check the relevant groups in that forum for custom mod permissions.

It's also worth pointing out that being an administrator has nothing to do with being a moderator, they are two completely separate roles.
