#504 closed defect (duplicate)

can't change moderators when creating a new forum

Cc: Trac Release: 0.9


I just installed the plugin and started using it. I'm loving it! Thank you for the wonderful plugin!

There are two users with TRAC_ADMIN and DISCUSSION_MODIFY permissions assigned on my site, and I am one of them. Let's call them userA and userB.

When I create a new forum, a page shows up with three fields (name, subject, and description) and a scroll menu (moderators).

The moderators scroll menu only shows userA, and so I can't assign userB as a moderator for a forum. Is this a bug?

As I mentioned above, both userA and userB have DISCUSSION_MODIFY permission. DISCUSSION_VIEW and DISCUSSION_MODERATE don't need to be assigned, do they? In other words, DISCUSSION_MODIFY permission lets you do everything that DISCUSSION_MODERATE and DISCUSSION_VIEW can do, am I right?

thanks :)

The probably reason why you don't see userB is clearified in ticket #487. List of moderators is not dependent on permissions assigned to user but only if Trac knows that user. Your assumptions about permissions is right so please post a ticket if there is something wrong with that.
