In bb_specials.php I have this array of mods:

$mods=array(1=>array(2,3,4,5),2=>array(2,3,4,5),71=>array(2,3,4,5),3=>array(2,3,4,5),4=>array(2,3,4,5),5=>array(2,3,4,5) , 6=>array(2,3,4,5),7=>array(2,3,4,5),8=>array(2,3,4,5),9=>array(2,3,4,5),41=>array(2,3,4,5),42=>array(2,3,4,5),14=>array( 2,3,4,5),8=>array(2,3,4,5),17=>array(2,3,4,5),23=>array(2,3,4,5),18=>array(2,3,4,5),47=>array(2,3,4,5),43=>array(2,3,4,5 ),24=>array(2,3,4,5),28=>array(2,3,4,5),29=>array(2,3,4,5),30=>array(2,3,4,5),31=>array(2,3,4,5),32=>array(2,3,4,5),33=> array(2,3,4,5),34=>array(2,3,4,5),35=>array(2,3,4,5),36=>array(2,3,4,5),55=>array(2,3,4,5), 46=>array(2,3,4,5),38=>array(2,3,4,5),68=>array(2,3,4,5),69=>array(2,3,4,5));

That means that all moderators can moderate all forums. Is there a simpler way to write this array? Thank you.

$mods = array();
$forumCount = mysql_query("SELECT forum_id FROM minibbtable35_forums");
while($row=mysql_fetch_array($forumCount)) {
$id = $row['forum_id'];
$mods[$id] = array(7,23,31);

This is how I do it :)

Well, I like it because it's short but I'm not sure if doing a database query is not too complex for this task. I think some smart array (merge) should work faster ;)

The code provided by myBTBdb above just automates the process. Whenever you add a new forum, the list of moderators is automatically expanded to this forum. If you have a lot of forums, let's say 100, it would bring some comfort. It's an easy mySQL query - I think in terms of resources it is almost nothing to for the database. But in some aspects it could brings an additional load to the server.
