How do moderators BAN someone?

I can't see an ACP login link as a moderator (is there one?), and also can't figure out how to ban a member either?

Any help much appreciated :)

Thanks,
Shaun :D

Moderators do not have access to the ACP, only Administrators.

Administrators can ban from the ACP using the Users menu.

Moderators (and Administrators) can use the Spam Cleaner.

So I'd have to make my moderators "Admins" to be able to access Users menu?

Hmmm ... not so sure about that ...

Do you know if there are any plans for a Moderator's ACP?

Cheers,
Shaun :D

More moderator controls are planned.

You can though just remove the criteria from the spam cleaner and the ability to ban anyone will be available to moderators from the profile or member card.

That's a neat workaround, Brogan. I posted a suggestion relating to this a while ago located here. As that points out, you can also make your Super Mods admins, but via the control panel only and not by changing the usergroup, and removing all but the ban permissions. This still, however, opens the admincp to them, and allows them to view certain aspects which do not have an off switch (like the error log).

IMO, there really is no need for a mod cp, as all moderator functions are performed inline on the forum, and banning a spammer is done through the spam cleaner. As Brogan mentioned, more moderator privileges are planned.

Or just let them use the spam filter to ban the user ..
