  • [Forum] One Member of a Usergroup has all his posts sent to Moderation queue

    I have an odd problem on my VB4 installation. I have a standard 'registered member' type of usergroup from which hundreds of people post, but this one user in the usergroup who when he tries to post gets told that a Moderator needs to look at the post first. No obvious permissions issues as the rest of the usergroup manage to post just fine.

    Any tips as to what might be going on please?

    Are you using any additional spam add-ons or Akismet?

    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - "Quick Route" Interface...

      What do you have set in AdminCP > Settings > Options > spam management > anti-spam service?

        I think we tracked this down to Akismet settings, thanks for pointing me in that direction! Settings were to check users below 25 posts and for some reason this particular user was not liked by Akismet and so his posts got queued for moderation. We changed the limit to one less than his total post count and the problem disappeared.

        Ah well, problem resolved and help gratefully acknowledged & received with thanks!
