How to stop moderators moderating in a certain subforum?

Postby admin » Wed Mar 29, 2017 7:33 pm

Hi. I have created a hidden subforum on my phpbb board for moderators and admins to discuss things. I want to be able to stop moderators from having permissions to moderate in that forum. I've done what seems logical in the ACP by selecting Groups' Forum Permissions, but the permissions only cover standard posting type activities. I can't seem to deselect moderator privileges there. Any ideas?

Simply create a new group and copy the global moderators permissions into it. Then go to the group forum permissions to select admin permissions and tick edit posts off.

The effect is a new moderator role that can edit and delete in all forums except the one you changed the forum permissions to.
