  • make some users not require approval in a moderated forum?

    How do I allow some users to post in a moderated forum so that their posts go straight on and don't need to be approved?

    I've looked at every permission I can find and spent hours on this forum but cant find the answer..

    If no, posts are always placed into moderation queue
    You would need to place those users in newly created usergroup that you need to make.

      Thanks for your reply but that wont work -

      I create a new user group and put them in it and if I set "follow forum moderation to yes", they will be moderated because the forum is a moderated forum.

      If I set it to "no" they will still be moderated because, as it says, "If set to no, posts are always placed into the moderation queue".

      Either way they will be moderated??

        Set the permissions for that forum for that usergroup to also follow moderation rules

            Yes.

            Why don't you make the forum not moderated, and change all usergroups except the one in particular, to NOT follow forum moderation.

            In other words, the forum's settings will be to not place posts in moderation, but the usergroup settings (which are "dominant") will say to put them into moderation.
            The one group that you want to be able to post in that forum will be able to if you set their permissions to "Follow Forum Moderation Rules (Yes)"

              Set the forum to be unmoderated and set the other groups so that "Always Follow Forum Moderation Rules" are set to no.
