Forum Access changes your forum administration pages to let you apply
role-based permissions to each forum, and to give each forum individual
Moderators automatically get all privileges on all posts in that forum,
including edit and delete.
Forum Access requires the current versions of the following modules:
- Forum https://backdropcms.org/project/forum
- ACL https://backdropcms.org/project/acl
- Chain Menu Access API https://backdropcms.org/project/chain_menu_access
(If this patch is not yet in the Forum module, then you have to apply it.)
Administering Forum Access requires Core's Administer Forums permission.
Detailed explanations of how Forum Access' grants work together with Core's
other permissions are available on the administration pages.
Forum Access does not have its own administration page -- it adds its controls
to Core's forum administration pages. Go to admin/structure/forum, click on an
'edit forum' link and set Access Control for the selected forum.
Repeat this for every other forum.
Step-by-step troubleshooting instructions are provided on the administration
In case you have additional node access modules enabled, the administration
pages will provide additional information on how to make them work together,
and you should probably follow the troubleshooting instructions to install
DNA and learn about how your combination of node access modules works.
