Newbie needs info on V 2.4 to 2.5.2 upgrade

Hi all,

I find myself on the steep end of the learning curve.

The forum I am now an Admin for is running 2.4 and seems an upgrade to 2.5.2 is warranted. 

There are errors/bugs in the 2.4 version that seem to prevent moderators to approve new members joining so many are being "auto" rejected.

Ideas suggestions?

I don't think mere moderators have the authority approve memberships in 2.4 or any version of YaBB. That would be the prerogative of admins and Global moderators (if your forum has Global moderators and they have permission to approve memberships.)

So moving to 2.5.2 won't solve that particular problem. However, 2.5.2 does have anti-spam features and other features that should make upgrading worthwhile.  Smiley

I mis-stated I am a global mod.

If you're a global moderator and you don't have permission to access the Registration Log, the admin needs to go over those permissions.

And for you admins who do this, I can tell you in a YaBB 2.4 forum that adjusting some of those permissions can be a bit tricky.

For instance, when you check addmember, viewmembers automatically checks itself after you save your edit. The two go hand in hand, but not really. So be careful about it, and double-check the end result. Just know that a lot of edits can be made, and with mixed results.

Suggestion: Create a global moderator account of your own so that you can see firsthand how everything works as you make Global Moderator Access edits.


  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!
