I have some issues in setting up content moderator permissions. If I set global "Forum Moderator Permissions" for "Manage (move, merge, etc.) thread by anyone" to "Allow" then content moderators of specific forums get this permission globally even in the forums where they are not assigned moderation duties. If I set the same permission in a specif node instead then they get no permissions. See the screenshot from "Permission Analysis" page below.
While manual says:
Thus, if a user has not set (no) and allow for a permission, the final value will be allow.
I think I have realized the reason now. I used to think that any permission item appearing under "Forum Moderator Permissions" section will be applied to only the moderators of of the forum in question. But I think this is not the case, correct me if I am wrong please. @Brogan @Jake Bunce
Now, the screenshot thing is clear to me. It was actually a Category node which cannot contain threads. But it would be nice if it was noted in the Permission Analysis tool. (A suggestion may be?)
