how do I allow a moderator user group to see notifications about flagged content and\or make them emailed to moderators? I tried different permissions but still can't make a dashboard available for a moderators group.
There's a Flagging plugin that creates new discussions in a category of your choosing when a member manually flags a comment/discussion. Moderators can receive email notifications when this happens. There's no central place to view a list of these except for the discussion list for the category you select.
Separately, there's a Moderation Queue in the Dashboard that allows moderators to see content marked as needing moderation.
These are two different features that aren't related; I'm not sure which one you're looking for help with.
I think it also depends on which version of the flagging plugin you are using.
I believe in 1.1.0 it was based garden.settings.manage
try version 1.1.1 possibly. Probably available on github.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
Not entirely sure which version of the flagging plugin we're using on 2.1, but it allows for any content users flag to have a new topic started about it in a forum of your choice.
We have a moderator forum which can't be viewed by anyone else - we call it "Moderator's resources" and ours is set to post there.
We've never had a flagged post to test it out!
If the version of the plugin is unknow - it shows up in the dashboard. as well as the source code. 2.1 comes with version 1.1.1
to get flagging 1.1.0 to work properly for moderators you need to make code changes to allow moderator to do things.
thanks to everybody!
So, what was your solution? You selected all responses for the correct answer. I think the correct response is the one that should have correct answer, and if you want to click insightful or awesome that is an added plus, but it's confusing when you click 4 different responses as the answer. Just my take on it.
It all helped, sorry for the mess I am just a newbie here Actually I use 1.1.0 and found switching to 1.1.1 helpful, also creating a topic on the forum with flagged content is a great feature. I am still figuring out which solution is best for me.
