    Hello-

    I'm using a fresh install of Sitefinity 3.2. I'm trying to enable moderation of forum posts. Next to "Moderate Posts", I selected "yes" and saved my changes. Regardless, whenever I post to the forum, my post shows up immediately and doesn't seem to get flagged for moderation. Am I missing something?

    Regards-
    Eric

    Hello Eric Marthinsen,

    Please note that first you create a forum and then start a thread in it. The thread (that's also the opening post) goes live even if moderation of posts is enabled for the forum. The posts in reply to this opening post will be hidden on the live site, until you make them visible through the administration. This is how Moderate Posts = Yes works.
    Maybe we should rename that option to Moderate Replies to make it clearer. 
    Also, we are planning a lot of other enhancements in this module, but we are currently concentrated on stabilization and security and cannot commit to a timeframe for new features.

    Let us know if you need any further information or assistance.

    Greetings,

    So how do we set it up to not allow new threads then and moderate them at the thread leve?

    Hello,

    Each forum has a Settings page where you can enable thread moderation, please review attached image for reference.

    Actually, there is a setting to moderate posts not threads.  So a user can create any number of threads without them being moderated.

    So how can we moderate threads until they are approved?  Or, can we set it so Threads may not be created?

    Hello Bart Welch,

    Unfortunately this is not possible. I would have to either create a custom module which inherits from the Forms one and extends the Thread class so that it has an approved value, or do as suggested in the other thread you have on this topic.
