Hi guys :banana: Is there a way that I can make only admin have delete permissions? I want to be able to give my moderators global IP viewing, global thread management, etc but I don't want them to be able to delete anything because it is being abused :paranoid:

Thanks in advance, :banana:

This will show the no permission error if the user isn't an admin and they try to delete a post/thread.

Julie can you please edit your signature.
You're just allowed to have one image or text in it, not combined

thank you


oh and on topic: you should talk with your mods, if you can'T trust em, fire em...

NTLDR's solution is correct (as usual) but I guess this would stop deleting via "admin commands" only. Mods can still delete posts by "edit post" option.

And what if you also hacked that section? They can then edit the post and remove its content by eg. ".". Is it so different than deleting? :)

I agree with Xenon here: If you dont trust them for deleting posts you should really think twice why they are mods anyway..

:paranoid: Is there any special way to prevent it from happening both ways? :smoke:
