moderating

edited January 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Does Vanilla allow for post moderation? Other than having to apply for membership, is there a facililty for a moderator to have to approve each post as it comes through? or varying levels of this? Not a big fan of such micro-management in forums but we've been asked about it by a client....

    Nope.
    Apparently it would be possible, but only with a lot of work.

    It's a forum, not a blog. While you can have moderators to manage and hide certain posts, theres no such way to approve posts like in a blog. It appears right away and the management of such a means to posting would be a royal pain.

    well, i know it's a forum and not a blog. i thought that there are forums out there that allow this kind of moderation and as we were asked if the forum we chose to use could provide it i thought it a fair question to post here. my next question would be: does anyone know actually if *any* forums provide this feature? telling the client "actually, no-one provides this kind of feature" would be a great help, but i could have sworn phpBB provides something like it...

    I don't think it would be a *huge* modification to make posts hidden by default. A mod with sufficient privs could then come around and show them.

    You could definitely do it as an extension in 0.9.3. As lech said, the actual moderation of this would be a royal pain, but it *can* be done with some minor db changes and some nifty extension programming.
