I've recently installed WPForo on my WordPress website and I'm facing some challenges with configuring user permissions. Specifically, I'm trying to set up a hierarchy of user roles with different levels of access to the forum. However, despite tinkering with the settings, I can't seem to get it right.

Here's what I'm aiming for:

Admins: Full control over the forum, including moderation, user management, and content creation.
Moderators: Ability to moderate discussions, manage users, and access certain administrative features, but without full administrative privileges.
Regular Users: Can participate in discussions, create posts, and interact with other users, but cannot access moderation tools or administrative functions.

I've tried adjusting the user roles and permissions in the WPForo settings, but I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly. Can someone guide me through the correct steps to achieve this configuration? Any insights or tips would be greatly appreciated!
