  • Chalkiex added a new discussion topic Admin Levels... in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hi, I've looked around and there are variations of what I'm looking for, basically, I want to be able to add a user to my site who is given certain Admin rights, but not all of them, for example, they would be able to authorise new membership...
