    Hi All,

    Can someone explain to me about the Usergroup settings and permissions. I'm a bit confused.

    In order to set a user to be a moderator. Do I set a user to join the moderating user group? or I just add the username within the add moderator section of Node Permission ?

    Can I create a specific user group to hold a moderating permission of a specifc node? Eg. User Group Moderator Forum A, User Group Moderator Forum B. That way I can assign a user to a specific user group for the user to access moderating tool of the specific forum ?

    Thx

    Moderators must be explicitly set as moderators, either globally or per node.
    The user group can be used for styling and to assign base permissions.

    I see but user groups has Moderator permission properties too, in what case does the usergroup moderator permission properties
    gets factored in?

    Global Moderator means the user is set as a super moderator?

    Hi Brogan, I've did some test on my xenforo 1.2 install locally. I created a user and assign the user as a moderator through the node permission, this way I can intricately give permission to specific forum that I enable the user to moderate. Once I delete the node permission for the user and assign the user to the moderating user group, the user are able to moderate board wide. Would I be able to assign the node permission to a user group thereby minimizing configuration of specific moderating permission for new moderator?

    How do we apply Usergroup to Node Permission?

    Yes, as I explained in my first post:
    So set the permissions in the Moderating user group that you want all moderators to have, global and content (forum) moderators.
