Well done! Once this mod can be can be turned on/off for specific usergroups, I will use it.

A few suggestions...
- Make the not yet approved posts/topics viewable in their normal place to moderators and admins only (instead of in the MCP).
- Place a Approve//Delete button at the top of each waiting post, and an Approve All button at the bottom and/or top of the viewtopic page.
- Add some sort of indicator on the viewforum page that posts/topics are waiting for approval. Perhaps something small and similar to icon_newest_reply.gif.

Ahh I see how your thinking..

This would be easier for showing what is on the forum. It would mean restructuring the code for viewforum and viewtopic but is possible.

I'll keep you posted on developments

MOD UPDATES:
- Major Fixes to MOD file
- Minor code fixes, code now refined


Sorry but I hadn't the chance before to install the MOD from the file I wrote. Today I went through it and noticed I had written a couple of things down wrong :o. It did however, give me a chance to refine the code! So further improvements have been made.

I haven't uploaded the new fixes but when I do, the MOD will be version 0.1.0 as it was a BIG revision in how this MOD works!

This MOD is good for people seeking an alternative to "Approve MOD" and its easy to install! It only takes 15 minutes and I have tried it and it works on 2.0.6, 2.0.8 AND the new 2.0.10!! :D

I'm fairly confindent it works for any version, so it will hopefully be 2.x.x 8)

Please try out this MOD as I would like peoples opinions and advice on improvements!

Thanks in advance :wink:
