Manage Forums (non-admin)
In response to the following, is there a way to accomplish this without giving a user WP admin status?
Thank you Nemo,
You can manage all accesses of Usergroups in Forums > Usergroups admin page. Only WP administrators have permissions to manage forums in dashboard. wpForo admin without having WordPress administrator role can't access to Forum management page.
There are Forum Accesses (Forums > Settings > Forum Accesses) and Usergroup Permissions (Forums > Usergroups). These two systems are designed to do all, you just need to check and try to understand how it works and try it. If there will be more questions just let us know.
