I set my default moderator permissions so they have all the moderator options except hard delete. When I added my first forum-specific moderators. I noticed they were able to edit threads in other forums!
This is not what I wanted, so I tried unchecking Add Moderator to User Groups: Moderating and checking all the permissions I wanted them to have below. Unfortunately when I did this, they stopped being about to moderate even the forum they were assigned to!
Right now I am having it do what I want by:
- Clearing the moderator group of all default permissions
- Checking Add Moderator to User Groups: Moderating
- Checking all the permissions except hard delete in Edit Moderator.
