    How can I moderate a users posts prior to allowing them to be posted?

  • #2
    Moderation can be enabled at the group and/or forum level.

    You can moderate an entire group by setting this permission:

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Always Moderate This Group's Posts

    Or for an entire forum:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Moderate Posts / Threads / Attachments

    Or for specific groups in specific forums:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions -> Always Moderate This Group's Posts

    When a post is put into the moderation queue, you can approve it in your:

    Admin CP -> Moderation -> Moderate Threads / Posts

      Just an FYI as I just got this issue and didn't think. Also check the Forum Permissions for your Category Forum.. the permissions cascade down so even if the forum is set to display as a category and not a forum if you set moderate this forums posts.. it will enforce that in all the forums below that category

        That is very helpful, however I have a question to ask. How does one moderate the posts of new members until their usergroup is changed by the Administration? Also, is it possible to moderate new members up to a certain amount of posts?

          Yes, you can:

          1. Change the Registered usergroup setting for 'Always Moderate This Group's Posts' to 'Yes'

          2. Use the User Promotions system.

          a. Create a new usergroup with the appropriate overall permissions:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager

          b. Set the appropriate usergroup permissions for the forum in question:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Forum Permissions

          c. Create a Promotion to promote users that reach this post level to that group:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Promotions
