@daftcyborg users automatically watch topics they create. So yes that notification option does what you want.
How can I assign a user to be a moderator but not an admin?
I'd like to assign a few members of my forum to a "moderator" group of some sort so that they can edit and delete all the posts on the forum. How can I do that without adding them to the system administrators group?
@arasbm ACP > Manage Categories. Click Edit on the right of a category and click on permissions, search for the name of the user, and an options box will come up to the right of that user, click that, very bottom will have the option of "Moderator" click that. Do that for each mod in each category. It's not the fastest method, but does allow for different moderators for different categories.
hmm, I dont seem to have that in my theme (based on Lavender). Here is what I see:
I dont see any moderator option? Am I still missing it?
Oh never mind, I see what you mean now. I have to first search for the user I want to be moderator.
I kept looking for a way to make a whole group moderator, but I guess that is not possible.
Thanks @a_5mith !
