How to setup private Forums for your Moderators 9 Years, 1 Month ago  
This is a short HOW-TO that explains how to setup a set of private forums for you moderators without the need of any hacks or additional plugins. This is one way of doing it and has been used on many sites for a long time.

This setup works with FireBoard 1.0.5

1.) Setup your moderators as \'Managers\' in the Joomla Backend

2.) Set the Moderator in the FireBoard user manager. Do not assign them to any forums if you want them to be global moderators.

3.) Setup a set of forums with public access level \'Publisher\' (hide it from regular users) and backend access level \'Manager\'

Done.

You can define various access for different types of moderators. The highest level will see all, lower levels will only see a subset.
The setup does not allow for a lot of flexibility in terms of assigning various users to various forums but it works great for a typical Moderator only forum setup.

Hops this helps!

Thanks for this little tutorial fx.

I made it like that (just used jaclplus rights instead of joomla one but works well). The only problem that stay is that the topics created in the moderator private category are showing in the \"latest topics\". how could i configure fireboard to have 1 or more category to NOT SHOW in the \"latest discussions\".
