XF 1.4 I have no admin/mod tools for threads

There is nothing visible for me to stick threads, close threads, delete posts/threads, move threads, etc...

All I have seen is that I can make something spam to delete it.

Do I need an add-on for admin tools or am I missing something? I have enabled all my privileges.

You need to explicitly make your account a moderator and then assign the relevant permissions.

Ensure you haven't used Never in any of the user groups.

You can use the permissions analyser to determine where the final permission is coming from.
Oh I see now. I had assigned myself into the VIP group in addition to the mod and admin groups. As added protection I had selected "never" for many options for the VIP's.

Thank you so much :)
