    Could be a few things....
    AdminCP > Settings > Options > Spam Management > Anti-Spam Service - anything set there?

    Usergroup Manager > edit usergroup > Follow Forum Moderation Rules should be set to Yes

    same in Forum Permissions > edit usergroup/forum and look for same setting

    Forum Manager > edit forum > Moderate Posts/Threads ?

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

      I don't see these all of these options when trying to do this. I did an expand all and did a search for "Forum Manager" and there's no such option for VB 5.1.7 Connect that I can see.

          I think Lynne was talking about the "Channel Manager" (AdminCP > Channel Management > Channel Manager).

            I'm still lost here. I've spent days going through every option on here and for the life of me cannot figure out how to approve any of the posts. The only way I can make it happen right now is if I make the user a moderator.

            Follow Channel Moderation RulesIf no, posts are always placed into moderation queue
            I have it set to YES. Yet the posts don't go live after I have those settings in the Channel Permissions.
