Anonymous moderators?

Post by starfish » Tue Feb 10, 2009 9:21 pm

For some reason "Anonymous" shows up in "Moderators" in every forum on my phpbb board index.

The admin panel shows Anonymous as a member of Guests group only (and the 1 other non-moderator user in Guests doesn't show up in moderators, as it shouldn't). The a. panel also shows the Anonymous User with :

user permission - No role (all No except can search board)
global moderator perm - No Role (all Never)
admin perm - No Role (all Never)

Anonymous user forum permissions for all forums is read only access, and for moderator perms - No Role (all Never)

The Guest group also has the expected permissions.

Note that the "moderator control panel" link doesn't show up for either anonymous or non-moderator user, so maybe anonymous doesn't REALLY have moderator access. But why does it show up?

Could we have a link to your board please?
What sort of changes have you made to your board since installing it?

Try using the "Permissions Masks" feature in the ACP to see how the anonymous user is getting a moderator permission.
