MG 1.1 how do I moderate?

    I did a test upload of an image as a registered user and was told that the image would appear once moderated...

    But neither my Admin account (which has Super Moderator and Registered secondary groups) nor any of my Super Moderators can see anywhere to moderate that image.

    I'm sure I'm missing something but can you point me in the right direction?

    Adding users to the admin and moderators user groups doesn't make them administrators and moderators, you have to explicitly add them to Users > Moderators and Users > Administrators for them to have these roles.

    See this about moderators:


    Once they have been added, they will see the moderator bar and moderator queue (ensure the correct permissions mentioned in that link are set for this). They will then be able to moderate the gallery (and forums).

    You should also read the guide linked below about permissions, which explains that everyone should have the Registered user group as their primary user group and how to set up permissions correctly.

    Thanks @Martok I have done those things and I think I see how it works now.

    I am not used to an Admin not having everything a Moderator sees but I get it.
