Hi  peterwangbiz,

you can change it on frontend (on current user Member Account Page) as shown in the screenshot.

Thank you!

According to what you say, it seems any member can set himself as a forum administrator?

I guess maybe there is some misunderstand - I don't want to set myself as a Forum Moderator,  I want to set another person (he is already a member of this Forum) as a Forum Moderator. 🙂

I've try to login as an ordinary member in the way your advised , what I saw is different (pls see screenshot attached) - no "User Group" there. 

 

Another Question: 
If I don't want the members to see each other in "members" page, how should I set?

 

Thank you!

No, this option is only available for Admins. You should login as admin, then go to a user Profile > Account page and change it. The same thing you can do in Dashboard > Users > Edit user screen.

This is Wordpress User Roles. This is not wpForo Usergroups. Make sure you're admin in WP and in wpForo, then do a bit more scroll down and find this option:
