is it possible (with another mod that automagically changes the user group as post count increases) to have this work 'out of the box' to allow another usergroup (other than mods and admins) to post un-moderated. i.e. after someone has a few posts, they can post freely. cheers Again, as it currentl...

so does that mean u gonna put it in next updated version or .. Not exactly. If I change the code so that it fits your needs, then it won't be the same functionality anymore. Therefore, to be published here this feature needs to be optional (i.e. can be turned on/off). This is more than just one lin...

Alternatively, (if you used EasyMOD) you can restore all the modified files which should be located in the "mods/approval_mod/backups" directory and then reapply the latest version of Approval MOD. That will only work if you did not install any MODs after the Approval MOD. I assume by this statemen...

Hello again, A couple of weeks ago I started making changes to axe70's mod to fit my requirements. I soon realized that I needed a bit more that the current version provides :-( And I needed it really ASAP. So I wrote my own Approval MOD, because "modifying the mod" is not very nice task. I wrote th...

The best way is scratch install.

I mean if you go into the User Management in the AdminCP and choose someone's name, say, sobe, and at the bottom there is a checkbox that states, "Mark as Troublesome User". And if that box becomes checked, then every post that user makes, cannot be shown to public, and states that the post must be...

Oops. Nevermind. I'm reading the post as the poster! I can't read it when I'm someone else. Everything's fine now. Yeah, I need to add this info into the readme.txt and to the first post of this topic. Thanks for reminding :-) Glad it worked for you. I am packaging RC3 now with the SQL changes and ...

It works great, even with the latest phpBB, however, your version seems a little "lighter" My version is most definitely MUCH lighter (and I am proud of it :lol: ). That was the whole point why I started designing it. In comparison to the abandoned Approve MOD it puts SIGNIFICANTLY less strain on t...

sobewebmaster wrote: a "TU" system, which is marked as "Troublesome User". And when someone is marked by an admin as a TU, all posts must await moderation


And how exactly is a user marked as TU in your system? Is this a special group that you put the user into?

Ok, forget the phpMyAdmin. It is a bit too much to install that just to execute 3 SQL queries ;-) I have a little script for you that will do the needed task. Create a new text file directly under the root of phpBB, in the same directory where the you see common.php, faq.php, login.php, etc. Name th...

Have you ever used phpMyAdmin before?

You need to execute SQL queries directly on your SQL database. :-)
phpMyAdmin is the best for this purpose.

Several questions to you: Which versions of PHP and EasyMOD are you running? Which database (MySQL/Postgresql/Oracle/MSSQL) are you using? What happens to those disappeared posts if you go to the Admin CP and uncheck the "Enable Approval System" box? Does everything then work exactly as before insta...

Existing posts, prior to me installing the MOD, don't show when signed in as a normal user Prior = before. So, your "existing posts are not shown BEFORE you install this MOD"? Or after? I am sorry, but I am not sure what you mean by this. Additionally, I have a suspicion you are editing your files ...
