    Hi, I (an administrator) can't view reports (open or closed) but my moderators can. Is there an option I need to set somewhere in order to get this to work?

    Thanks.

    To view reported items, you must explicitly be made a moderator in the ACP.

    ACP > Users > Moderators

    In addition:

    Just an FYI but being an Administrator is not at all related with moderating content on the front end.

    It is possible to be an Administrator but not a Moderator.
     
    melbo and NURV like this.

    I went to that page and resaved it (even though all were checked) and after that it worked. Front end moderation permissions appeared to be imported from vBulletin just fine, so I don't need to change anything there.

    Good info Brogan.
    I just realized that I'm a Moderator without being in the secondary Moderator usergroup.

    User groups are primarily for permissions and styling.

    Specific states such as moderator and administrator are in addition to those.

    I've been told there is supposed to be a sidepanel on the reports area with buttons to close reports, etc. Why would this not be displaying? Any ideas? I do have the Widget framework addon installed and am using a custom side bar, but if I need to set something to enable the moderation side bar, please let me know.

    You would need to ask in the add-on thread.

    It should display by default.

    If you don't have any reports, there's nothing to see. Go report something and see if it shows up. I have widget framework but didn't have to do anything for the report functions.

    Where should it display by default? I don't see the options anywhere.

    (And I do have reported posts in there. We just can't close them or do anything but reply.)

    There are no options, the report centre sidebar is just there.

    As you're using Widget Framework, I suspect you are using the "All" position in the Clear Sidebar widget and possibly other widgets too. Don't use the "All" position as it carries out the action everywhere, including in the Report Centre, hence making the Report Centre sidebar disappear. You should use named templates instead eg forum_list. If you need for further guidance on using template names and hooks,you can post about these in the Widget Framework discussion thread.
