While I have managed many forums on the front end, this is my/our first endeavor from building one. Quite frankly, I am trying., but I am fumbling OK, I have the basic structure built in the nodes for the forum. I need to set user permissions, I will have the typical Admin, Mod levels but also specialty areas that only some groups can access and some that only can control replies. I think I can figure most of that out. Should I build a TEST member for each of these groups to try this out? OR did I just answer my own question?
Right now only Admin levels can access the forum but I want to have my staff come in and start building content and do testing. How can I do that without giving full admin permissions or should I just give them those permissions then change them when we go live?
