  • Moderated threads appear as new posts?

    I'm thinking about enabling a moderation queue (for threads only) for the introductions forum of my site because there's a lot of spam appearing in it. If I enable it, when I approve threads, will they automatically be marked as unread, even if they were originally posted after a user marked all forums as read?

    So for example, if someone posts an intro thread at 9:00, another user marks the forums as read at 9:30, and I don't approve the first users post until 9:45, will that thread show up as read or unread to the second user?

    Sorry if this is confusing. Thanks for any help.

    That probably depends on the read marking system you are using:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> General Settings -> Thread/Forum Read Marking Type

    The inactivity system goes by last visit date. The database system tracks read markers per thread, regardless of your last visit.
