  • Reported post not showing in moderator forum

    First of all I assume "flag post" is the equivalaent of "report post" on old versions. I set flagged posts to go to a moderator forum I created but they are not showing up. The moderators do get them as notifcations but easier to discuss when they show up in the forum. Here's how I tried to set it up. Does anything look wrong from my attempt? I know when I first went into that setting there was a default option but I had trouble making that foru visibie to any of us, wjhich is why I created a new one. Thanks. I attached a screen shot of what I have done so you can spot anything I have done wrong or missed. Thansk

    This functionality does not exist in vBulletin 5. Reported posts only show in the message centre.

      Why is that feature removed in vBulletin 5? It was really nice to have a thread autocreated in a moderator forum when a post was reported/flagged. Often a discussion about a reported/flagged post is needed. Or is there another way to discuss reported/flagged posts now?

        Unfortunately, this is the way the software is now designed. I believe there is an improvement request in the tracker to add the original functionality back, but as yet it has not gained any traction.

          The fact that vBulletin 3 and 4 create a new thread for this is because vBulletin 3 and 4 don't know how to do much of anything else. Even the CMS in vBulletin 4 requires a forum to hold Article comments. In vBulletin 5, the idea of content and content types was redesigned. This allows different ways of handling things such as these notifications. Is it better? Depeneds on your perspective.

            The notifications are really good in version 5. No doubt about that.

            But when a post is flagged/reported our moderators are used to discuss the report in a moderator forum. To discuss what do do with the report.

            I will look up that improvement request later on.
