Give Moderators ModCP Link In Footer

I just spoke to one of my moderators today and found out that by default in vBulletin the ModCP link doesn't show up in the footer for them. It shows up next to the AdminCP link for Administrators but if the user isn't an administrator they cannot see it.

This is just a very quick template modification for you to use if you want it to be visible for all moderators (and administrators).

Template Edit (1)

In Template "footer", find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace With:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I don't know why vBulletin hides it from them by default, and I haven't seen an option in the ACP to enable or disable it.

I hope this little modification helps at least one person.

Reserved, although this isn't the sort of mod likely to need updates.

is this not default in vbulletin?

Nope. Try logging in as a moderator account and see for yourself.

Normally only supermods and higher can the mod cp link. Dont ask me why.

This belongs in the vBulletin 3.6 Template Modifications catagory

Nice work LightScribe. It's been driving me up the wall this problem, glad it was such a simple solution. Let's hope vB includes an option in 3.7

Does this mod give a regular mod the same cp as a super mod?

DssCrazy 09 Dec 2007 14:18

I hope this get fixed by vb, because, this should be in the vb forums by defalt, if a admin gives a regular member mod rights then thay would be a staff, and thay would not be a staff if thay were not trusted! so why is it hided?

No...

How I got around this in the first place was to go into Mod Usergroup and check Can Moderate All Forums (is Super Moderator) at Administrator Permissions this would show the MOD link at bottom, then go into Forums & Moderators >>Show All Moderators>> then pick & choose what power you like them to have...

Apparently it's not on vB by default because it adds a query for ever user.

As Spank already replied, this is left out of the default vBulletin because it adds queries to every single page load. Adding this can have a negative impact on the performance of your board.

You choose the permissions that show up in the ModCP using the Moderator Manager section of your ACP. You can grant ability to ban, edit signatures, prune, move ect ect.

But how much more strenuous is the if condition="can_moderate()" query than the if condition="$show['modcplink']", since this replaces the latter with the former?

I have all my mods set as super mods anyways.
If I had a board setup that had mods that could only mod selected forums, I don't know if I'd want them to have access to the modcp.

just my 2 cents :)
