Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.
Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

Need Help!!!!

I ran into some problems when testing vanilla.
One of the big ones being that A moderator can delete all of the content of an Admin.
Also... I need to have the option for a moderator not to be able to ban another moderator.

Is it possible?

    You would have to create a custom plugin for that.

    Or find trustworthy moderators...

    I agree. Seriously now, that is what moderators are for, managing the forum and content, and if you do not want that, don't have moderators on your site :lol:

    BTW, I think an Admin can revoke moderator activities and restore content.

    If you worry about admin discussions designed to convey the forum policies, then you can put these in a special category and revoke moderators' permissions to delete those. If you worry about moderator comments, as mentioned earlier, those can be recovered.
    But more importantly, as R_J wrote, don't give moderator rights to those you don't trust.
