Permissions to create categories

I’m getting a forum up and running and would like moderators, or another staff level, to be able to make categories. Admin level gives too many abilities for some and could result in messing up the site. Is there a way to give moderators this ability? Or to make a new staff position somewhere between admin and moderator that can create categories?


A post was merged into an existing topic: How to let users create groups?

Hello and welcome @GreenKatie :slightly_smiling_face:

There’s the moderators manage categories and groups admin setting that will allow moderators to create categories:


Thanks! I wasn’t sure if it allowed creation or just managing. Thanks for clarifying


That’s a good point. :slightly_smiling_face: I’ll see if we can update the description to something more like:

Allow moderators to create and manage categories and groups


Seems like a good clarification for the setting description; I’ve updated it here:
