Hey Guys,

So I need the ability to have every new topic and any reply that comes into the message board approved before it goes live.

I also need to take away the message the users sees that their post is waiting moderation.

I also need a stealth mode so I can make a message so I can approve a message but only the user and admins can see and interact.....the user doesn't know their message or reply is in stealth mode.

You see.... I've got a membership site where every once in a while we will get a bad apple in there that will post something negative on a new topic or a reply that upsets others and some customers might want to refund.

I'd rather keep these bad apples in their own world so they don't realize that nobody else can see their posts and only Admins can interact with or see what they post if it's not approved.

Does that make sense?

Hi Joel,

So I need the ability to have every new topic and any reply that comes into the message board approved before it goes live.

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups, edit the Registered Usergroup and uncheck/disable "Can pass moderation" permission.

I also need to take away the message the users sees that their post is waiting moderation.

No way yet. but this CSS code may be helpful:

#wpforo-wrap .wpf-status-title, #wpforo-wrap .wpf-mod-message{display:none;}

Thanks I'll try the .css

Now on the "Can pass moderation"

I had already disabled this but this looks like it is only when someone starts a new topic.

What about replies on existing topics..... those come in without having to go through moderation.  I'd love this option to have to modify replies as well.

Sorry to be a pain.... that custom .css didn't work.... that message is still there for the users...saying Awaiting Moderation.  Is the syntax correct?

Please note, if a user is moderator or admin or it's in usergroup which has permission to edit members his topic and post will never been unapproved, it doesn't matter what you've set in Permission Settings.

You should check it with a regular user not as admin or moderator.

Oh for sure I'm checking as a regular user.  Thanks..

From this screenshot you can see what I have set

Any other ideas?

The New Topic does sit in moderation but replies from anyone do not.

Also that .css code you gave as an example does not take away the awaiting moderation message.

Thanks for your help.

Also make sure the spam control is turned on in Dashboard > Forums > Tools admin page.

In any case, we'll check it and fix this issue (if there is a core problem) in upcoming wpForo release.
