Joining a private clan

To join a private clan, you must first be invited. Once a leader invites you, you will receive a notification that you were invited to join the clan. You can either click the notification to be taken to the clan page where you can join, or you can head directly to the clan page and click join.

Moderators

You can assign members as moderators. Moderators can only manage content. They can:

  • Edit posts
  • Hide posts
  • Delete posts
  • Pin posts
  • Merge posts
  • Lock posts

To assign a member as a moderator go to the member page and on the member, you'll see a little gear to the top right of their badge. Click that and you can edit that member.

 

    Now you're ready to start filling up your clan! Have fun agents!

    This is awesome -- thanks for setting it up for us! Is there a breakdown of specific clan admin privileges assigned to Moderators vs Leaders?

    That's awesome. 

    I run a marketing forum using the same platform and the first thing I thought of when they released the "clubs" feature was that it would be a perfect fit for a forum to use to support gaming clans. 

    Well done!

    Right on and thanks! Invision Community is definitely the best forum cms out there and yes, I thought the clubs feature would for sure be an excellent platform for clans to have themselves a little place to openly or privately congregate. So easy to alter it and make it "clans" as well. Love Invision Community. Private message me your site url, I'd definitely like to check it out.

    Yes to everything you said. I do not understand why anyone would use anything else for a forum at this point.

    I'll send you that PM.

    I agree. I imagine alot of people don't want to pay the license fee, which in my opinion, is worth every penny.
