Hi,

Tried searching but because there are so many Can someone just clarify a really simple question for me? @Brogan this might require your input if you have a moment to spare.

In order to make someone a moderator my understanding is you create the user account (or they register), and then you go GROUPS AND PERMISSIONS > MODERATORS > ADD MODERATOR and add the user there. That brings up a second page.

My question is: Do I need to do anything here (to ensure that user has correct permissions) or can I just leave it blank (no selections) and the Moderator Group Permissions will come into place? Or is that page really only relevant for setting individual moderation settings for a user that might differ to Group Permissions?

This is the page I'm talking about:

Thanks for any replies :)

The Moderating usergroup permissions set up permissions that are common to all moderators.

The permissions on the Add moderator page are different and allow you to set specific permissions for a specific moderator that might vary from one moderator to another.

Ahh cheers djbaxter.

I figured that was the reason behind it, but wasn't 100% certain.
