moderators able to ban?

    @tomdebruin

    I’m running 0.9.0.3 (upgrading tonight to .4)

    anyway, my moderators aren’t able to ban users, or turn them into bozos. The ‘Edit’ link within that users profile page is not there. It is for administrators and key masters.

    Is this correct? I would like my mods to have these powers.

    That is correct. Here are the moderator capabilities from bb-includes/capabilities.php:

    'moderator' => array(
    'name' => __('Moderator'),
    'capabilities' => array(
    'moderate' => true,
    'participate' => true,
    'manage_tags' => true,
    'delete_topics' => true,
    'close_topics' => true,
    'stick_topics' => true,
    'move_topics' => true,
    'view_by_ip' => true,
    'edit_closed' => true,
    'edit_deleted' => true,
    'browse_deleted' => true,
    'edit_others_tags' => true,
    'edit_others_topics' => true,
    'delete_posts' => true,
    'throttle' => true,
    'ignore_edit_lock' => true,
    'edit_others_posts' => true,
    'edit_favorites' => true,
    'edit_tags' => true,
    'edit_topics' => true,
    'edit_posts' => true,
    'edit_profile' => true,
    'write_topics' => true,
    'write_posts' => true,
    'change_password' => true,
    'read' => true
    )),

    You could add the permissions you for your moderator there, but it’s generally a bad idea to modify a core file. You probably want a plugin to modify the capabilities for your moderators. I didn’t see one specifically for that, but I did notice this plugin was added yesterday.
