Support for premoderation?

edited April 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi there We researching different bulletin board applications for use on a UK government-based site aimed at the youth market. After hearing so many good things about Vanilla, I'm eager to try it as the preferred solution. However, one of the requirements is for pre-moderation (e.g. moderators must approve posts before they will appear on the board). Unfortunately this is a security stipulation when working with a predominately young user base. Can anyone tell me if this kind of functionality is available within Vanilla? Or if not, if it is available as an add-on? Thanks in advance....

    No it is not available. But could be done.

    I wonder if you could give posing privlidges to a category that nobody can view (except moderators) Then, to approve messages, the moderators move the message to an appropriate category. Shouldn't be too hard to automate the approval to a one-click process.

    Interesting comments...don't suppose anyone would be interested in building this fucntionality as an add-on? We'd be willing to pay for this obviously.

    Hi folks, Was there any movement on this, did anyone ever develop it? I've got an urgent client need for a simple forum solution that has pre-moderation. Cheers

    Righto, I've had a look round the web over the past couple of days, and Vanilla looks the best web standards based forum and ideal for my clients needs apart from the pre-moderation thing. As with boxman, we'd be willing to pay someone to build this as an add on for our client. Can anyone help?

    Uhm, only problem with that is that the post writer then can not see it. I think it would be better if the writer could still see it so, if they need to make changes prior to moderation they can, or send something a few days before, forget that they sent it and then try and send it again. Maybe use the force whisper extension instead where it forces them to either whisper to themselves or to an admin, then an admin can go in and make it a public post when they have "moderated" it.
