Topics and Posts Being Queued for Approval

This Documentation applies to zIFBoards only

If your members are receiving the following errors when trying to post:

  • Your new topic will be previewed by a moderator before it is added into this forum.
  • Your post will be previewed by a moderator before it is added into this forum.

Then your forum is set so that moderators need to approve posts before being added.

There are two factors which could be causing this, forum specific settings and member specific settings. To remove them follow the instructions below.

Removing Topic/Post Moderation per Forum

Log into your Admin CP, click Manage Forums, then Settings for each forum. In each case locate:

  • Moderate postings?(Requires a moderator to manually add posts/topics to the forum)

And set to No.

Removing Topic/Post Moderation per User

Log into your Admin CP then click Find/Edit/Suspend User. Search for the user in question and click Edit Details. Locate:

  • Require moderator preview of all posts by this member?

And remove the tick from the tickbox for this option.

To approve topics/posts awaiting approval, click on the Mod CP link and then click either Moderate New Topic Queue or Moderate New Post Queue
