XF 2.2 Disallow moving threads in to a node by moderator


Well-known member
I'm trying to figure out how to disallow a moderator from moving threads into a specific node. Is this even possible? If so, how? Thanks in advance.

If the moderator is a global moderator or a moderator of that forum and has the Manage (move, merge, etc.) any thread permission then you can't prevent it.

I'm just wondering @Brogan about something.

Suppose you choose node permissions.
Select the appropriote forum
Then select usergroup "moderating"
Then scroll down to "forum moderating permissions"
Set "Manage (move, merge, etc.) any thread" to "no" for that specific node.

I presume in this case the Yes for the Moderating usergroup overrides the specific NO in this node permission?

So what does this permission do what we're talking about here in the node permissions.
Moving "from" that node or moving "into" that node or both?

Wouldn't my suggestion work for Joyfreak?

Or use the bottom option and use the "user with permissions set" option? Put the moderators name in there and explicitely use the NO there?
Because that NO would override the inherited yes from the node permission?
