    Hi there,

    I’m currently developing with BuddyPress 1.7, and when I check the BP Group moderator roles, here is the official document from http://codex.buddypress.org/user/setting-up-a-new-installation/group-settings-and-roles/:

    Moderators: When a group member is promoted to be a moderatorof the group, it means that the member receives the following additional abilities:
    Edit group details, including the group name and group description
    Edit, close, and delete any forum topic or post in the group
    Edit and delete other kinds of content, as produced by certain plugins

    But when I logged in as a group moderator I cannot find the “Admin” tab to modify the group details…then I check many web pages and found this: https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4737

    So it seems that BP is hiding “Admin” tab for moderators now…

    My Question is: So how could a moderator to “Edit group details, including the group name and group description” exactly???

    Make them an admin, not sure why this aspect of mods vs. Admins caused so much confusion, I’m a mod on this forum and it really bugs me I can’t simply change all the forum names and descriptions at will as the fancy takes me ;)

    An Admin has this ability not a Mod. if mods had this ability what really would be the point in the distinction? but all this is covered in that ticket.

    @hnla, thanks for the reply.

    So for now Group Moderators could ONLY “Edit, close, and delete any forum topic or post in the group”, is that right?

    My problem is that I would like to preserve the “Admin” role to some limited members so they can do like delete group, kick/ban/promote users and some other actions with “higher” privilege. While Group Moderator can simply perform some “normal” administrations like edit group details,

    So it seems that it’s impossible?

    but that’s part of the issue , I simply don’t get why people regard changing the froum or group description as a relatively trivial aspect? A group description defines the group or forum and I would regard that as a higher level function. But yes until some means of further refining these two roles for the moment this is how they behave.
