Mailman moderator login


#1

I’ve spent an hour or so in the wiki, FAQs, and searching archives and Google, and have thus far come up dry.

I have a one-click install of Mailman 2.1.17 at Dreamhost.com.

I just added two users as Moderators, and am now trying to figure out how they can log in.

The particular need is to add or remove the occasional list subscriber. I THINK a Moderator can do this?

Every source that I’ve found says that moderator login is at:

http://tld.org/mailman/admindb/list-name

Problem is that the URL for the list I’m running is:

http://lists.1234legsgood.com/admin.cgi/nspda_list-1234legsgood.com

I’ve tried every way of adding /mailman/ and or /admindb/ to that URL and can’t figure out how it would work.

Anyone have a pointer for me?

Many thanks.

The thing that I love about Mailman is that since setting up this list three years ago it has required absolutely no attention - it just keeps working.

See the FAQ at http://wiki.list.org/x/12812344 :wink:

Note that adding addresses to the moderator box in the admin GUI General
Options section only gets notices sent to them. You still have to go to
the Passwords section, set a moderator password and give it to them. See
the FAQ at http://wiki.list.org/x/4030693.

No. Only someone authenticating with the list admin password can change
membership. Moderators can only handle requests which are held messages
and subscribes and unsubscribes waiting approval.

Have you tried
http://lists.1234legsgood.com/admindb.cgi/nspda_list-1234legsgood.com. I
think that will work, but if not, see where the “Tend to pending
moderator requests” link in the admin GUI goes.
