Moderator and User actions appearing in Admin Log

Postby antonjw » 27 Dec 2014, 08:15

When a mod edits or deletes a post, or purges the archive, this gets logged in the Admin log.

When a user edits their own mchat post, this gets logged in the Admin log.


Both of these things are counter-intuitive to how phpBB behaves. As you will know, phpBB has a Moderator Log and a User log. Basically I feel that the way mchat populates the admin log is incorrect. Surely this should be reserved for actions that an Administrator can take, with it being, you know, the Administrator log? ;)

I see regular usernames appearing in our Admin log just because they have edited an mchat post. I don't see users editing their regular phpBB posts peppering my Admin log full of information that has no relevance to administrators or their duties and actions, and I don't really want to see this from mchat, either...

I would venture that the mod is doing the wrong thing by populating the Admin log for moderator and user actions. There are other logs for those things.


I'll end with a question - last time I installed mchat, I was able to stop it populating the admin log, but I'm unsure what I did, becaue I don't see an ACP setting where I can stop this logging. How can I stop mchat from doing this?

Thanks.

Open mchat.php and wherever you see comment it out.

Great, thanks, I will do.

I wondered what you thought of having mchat post those actions to the relevant logs in a future release - or at least having the option in ACP of disabling this logging?
