XF 1.5 Permissions Confusion


Well-known member
Hey team.

2 questions for you,

First, what does "Manage profile posts on own profile" allow a member to do?

Second, a member (#1) was able to delete a profile post comment made by another member (#2) on his (#1) profile post, what permission controls this?

Thank you.

That permissions lets them do what you said secondly I think, it allows them to effectively manage their profile as if they had full access. At least that is how I always used the permission to allow them too.

I think with how the attached image is they can delete THEIR posts and no one else's on their profile but I'm not sure if they delete their initial profile post it deletes the users reply or not but I guess it does.
