Sounds good. But I have a question. If I don't include a usergroup in the ACP does it then not show on the forum leaders page?

Sym0n, in order to display on the View Leaders page, you must set the group id in the product options and that usergroup must have Show on Show Groups enabled in the usergroup permissions. If either condition is not met, that group won't be displayed.

Simply adding <!-- Order="1" --> to the usergroup title does the same thing !?

Actually, this modification *only* changes the order. If you don't include a given usergroupid in the Admin options for this mod, but it is set to "display on forum leaders page" in the usergroup manager, then it will still be displayed (in alphabetical order) after any usergroups that are specified in the options. So this mod only affect order, it will not keep any usergroups from being displayed. I have changed the wording in the Admin options for version 1.1 (That's the only thing changed.)

Yes and no. First of all, this is easier, since you don't have to change the title for all your usergroups, and second, this modification also allows you to change where the moderators block is displayed. Otherwise it's hardcoded at the top of the page.

Why is this not default?

THANK YOU. I can finally get rid of the numbers in front of the usergroups...

01 - Administrators
02 - Sub-Administrators
03 - Super Moderators

It looks so bad...

It works fine for me. It shows a table with "Moderators" at the top, then a list of usernames in the left column, the forums that they moderate in the middle column and the contact info in the right column. Can you give me a link to your forums where it's not showing correctly?

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. Just wondering if it would be possible to exclude the default moderators from showing on the forum leaders page in the next version?

The reason I ask is that on our forum we have a moderators usergroup which comprises of global moderators, they are site staff. We then have, at present, one person who only has moderator rights over one section of the forum and isn't classed as staff.

Whilst your product works flawlessly I would like to be able to remove the default moderators table from the forum leaders page without having to hack the showgroups template.

Thanks again.

Sy

The Default Moderators Block can be disabled by changing the "Forum Leaders" General setting to "Yes, but disable moderators". In version 1.2 of this product, I've made it clear how to disable that.
