Make someone Super Admin for Category


Well-known member
Is it possible to make someone Super Admin (or Admin) for a certain category so they can add/delete forum, manage users for forums under that Category.

I do not want to make that user site wide Admin but instead, create different categories and assign people to manage such categories.

The Administrative permissions are not that granular.

A Super Admin has total control, their ID is set in the config.php file; e.g. $config['superAdmins'] = '1,2,3';
The ability to manage nodes is a global permission.

I know the power of Super Admin and definitely would never go that route. So my question is if this is possible to assign to assign a specific user/usergroup to approve members to a private node?
