I’m wondering where I can go to change moderator and/or admin permissions. I was using NodeBB before, and they have a pretty robust system where you can add and take away permissions. Also, are there not something like ranks?? I haven’t found any of it but figured it would be something pretty typical of forum software like this.
I’m pretty sure there is no way to change the permissions for a mod or admin, and the rank system is manifested in the trust levels. You can easily change what trust levels are required for certain actions in the Settings menu, but I don’t think you can change mod/admin abilities (yet), although a team member could correct me.
Oh dang. That stinks. I have one more question. I found a post where they said you can add your own badges and control how they’re automatically given to users, but I can’t seem to find that either.
Go to /admin/badges
You can edit the settings on existing badges (or turn them off) and create your own ones.
Yeah, I saw that, but I don’t see a place to actually add an automated way for them to get the badge. Just the description, etc.
Due to security and performance risks of allowing raw sql badge queries, we only enable badge editing on our hosting for the business and higher hosting tiers – and even then only upon request.
