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.
