Post subject: Changing ALL Moderators Permission so they Cannot Delete

I have a dozen or so mods and I have over 50 forums -

I no longer want any of my mods to be able to delete posts -

I do not want to go into my ACP and click permissions and change every single delete option manually to "Admin" for every forum I have -

Does anyone know of a way I can do something server side (like pasting a single query or something) - thanks - icon_biggrin.gif

Admin Overall Forums Permission
This hack allow Admins to set permissions of all forums with only-one-mouse-click. Very useful for beginners.

wasn't all that great - changed all my staff and admin forums to "reg" so it wasn't until a basic member PMed me 5 minutes ago to let me know he could see things that he shouldn't - a simple querry would have worked for me - guess not too many people on this site yet -

An alternative can be to set up a hidden forum where all deleted posts go too, instead of disappearing. This way you can see exactly who removes what.

You can first change all your forums to what you want the majority to be, and then, change only the special ones to only for moderators/ admins or whatever... It's still, a great spare of time. icon_smile.gif

He can use Move Post Instead of Deleting. And if he wants to see who deleted what, he should replace this:
Code:
VALUES (".(int) $board_config['delete_post_forum'].", '".sprintf($lang['Deleted_post_from_topic'], $topic_title)."', ".$post_data['poster_id'].",

with this:
Code:
VALUES (".(int) $board_config['delete_post_forum'].", '".sprintf($lang['Deleted_post_from_topic'], $topic_id) . " - " . $userdata['username']."', ".$post_data['poster_id'].",

He will see topic ID and the name of who deleted, instead of the name of the subject. I also tryed to see the name of the topic (name+ID+nickname), but from some weird reason, didn't figure it out so far...

Post subject: Re: Changing ALL Moderators Permission so they Cannot Delete

Thanks guys, I had a "Pull and Paste" forum set up a long time ago so if a mod saw something that was questionable, he could just move the post out of the public eye so I could review it later - fact is though, there is almost zero posts that need to be deleted on my board, and any one of the staff members can easily get a hold of me at anytime if there is -
therefore, there is no reason for any of the staff to ever delete another post - I was hoping to simply paste a query to change that specific permission on all forums so that posts can no longer be deleted by a mod - that was all - it's done now though so I'm happy - icon_biggrin.gif thanks again -
