Looks very impressive! I havn't looked at the code, but judging from the screenshots, this looks very powerful!

Thanks!

This MOD is not really a lot of code. I am currently developing this MOD further into another one that will allow approval by groups. See the info in this topic.

If I install the currently released Approval mod, and then when the new version (with approval by groups) comes, I try to install that one, will it be a simple process? Will the new one automatically replace the old one?

To make this MOD "upgradable" to the Approval Groups MOD will mean additional development. I never planned this, to be honest. Approval Groups MOD is really another MOD there is a lot of new code in it and the code from this MOD is not really used one-to-one. So I would say treat them as two completely different MODs.

If you made a backup of all modified files (EasyMOD does this for you, for instance) AND you have not installed any mods after the Approval MOD, then you can just replace the modified files later on, which will do a "rollback" for you. After that Approval Groups MOD can be installed without any problem.

There may be a couple of extra SQL commands needed too, but that should not be complicated (if you know how to execute SQL commands) :wink:

Can this be configures that only a special group can approve the posts? and not moderators.

At this stage - no. Maybe it will be eventually implemented in the Approval Groups MOD.

Hi, I was just wondering if it's possible to make this mod so that only new topics require approval and not every post?

Thanks in advance.

I think this MOD quite complicate which I like...
But there is error msg like below... Unfortuantely,
this mannual not very clearly or formal. So I can't
follow so easy along this mannual. Could you give
another mannual here?

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_RETURN in /..../includes/functions_post.php on line 484

Code: Select all

#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
#
$meta
$message

return false;
#
#-----[ BEFORE, ADD ]-----
#
	// approval mod
	$approve_hide = (($post_data['forum_approve'] & (APPROVE_ON|APPROVE_HIDE)) == (APPROVE_ON|APPROVE_HIDE)) ? TRUE : FALSE;
	$approve_warn = (($post_data['forum_approve'] & (APPROVE_ON|APPROVE_WARN)) == (APPROVE_ON|APPROVE_WARN)) ? TRUE : FALSE;



What's mean that?

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]-----
#
. (($mode == 'newtopic') ? ", forum_topics = forum_topics $sign"
#
#-----[ IN-LINE BEFORE, ADD ]-----
#
 . ($post_data['approve'] == APPROVE_OFF ? ", forum_last_post_approved = $post_id" : '')
#
#-----[ IN-LINE AFTER, ADD ]-----
#
 . ($post_data['approve'] == APPROVE_ON ? ", forum_topics_unapproved = forum_topics_unapproved $sign" : '' )


This is viewforum.php... But there are already some editing in my file.
e.g. Global announcement, or topic-calendar... etc. How do I do?
So I got a problem about this MOD.

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
#
$sql
FROM
WHERE
AND
AND
AND
AND t.topic_type = " . POST_ANNOUNCE
ORDER
#
#-----[ BEFORE, ADD ]-----
#
// sql replaced by approval mod
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]-----
#
$sql = "SELECT t.*, u.username, u.user_id, u2.username as user2, u2.user_id as id2, p.post_username, p2.post_username AS post_username2, p2.post_time, p2.post_approve
	FROM " . TOPICS_TABLE . " t, " . USERS_TABLE . " u, " . POSTS_TABLE . " p, " . POSTS_TABLE . " p2, " . USERS_TABLE . " u2
	WHERE t.forum_id = $forum_id
		AND t.topic_poster = u.user_id
		AND p.post_id = t.topic_first_post_id
		AND p2.post_id = $sql_approve_where
		AND u2.user_id = p2.poster_id
		AND t.topic_type = " . POST_ANNOUNCE . "
	ORDER BY $sql_approve_order";
