Is there a way to limit what the mods can see on the back end and do? Also to limit what categories someone can mod?
No, there is currently not a way to alter the permissions, as Jeff said in this topic:
Moderators for a specific category is on the roadmap, but not yet implemented.
This is what moderators can do vs, admins:
Are you sure? Last I knew moderators that are not admins can not access a member’s messages unless they are included in the message.
Yeah, it’s probably outdated. Now moderators also can’t:
- Read people’s PM’s
- Get their email
- Cannot create categories.
@Mittineague is there some that I’m missing here?
Here’s some info about moderator permission changes:
I imagine there are other “can nots”, but one that comes to mind is Moderators can not impersonate other members.
