"This topic has not been approved"

Post by King-Nothing »

I have a plugin on my Joomla-site which creates a new topic in a selected forum when I publish a new article. This is a comment-thread for the spesific thread. But everytime I add a new article and the thread to that article is created, the topic needs to be approved before anyone else can see it. How can I fix this so that I don`t have to approve this manually each time?

I`ve checked the permissions and I cannot find anything wrong here...

You need to ask this of the developer of the Joomla plugin

But isn`t this a phpbb-permission issue?

But your plugin is creating the permission each time..

Ok. Thanks for that. :)

There isn`t a way to override this? The author of the plugin hasn`t found a solution yet.

The 'plugin' must be creating a 'user', find and set that users permissions. If the 'plugin' is creating a new user each time then .... Good luck with your developer.

Well, the plugin is not creating a user. It is my user (admin) which is used to post these threads. And since I have all permissions needed, I cannot understand why the threads has to be approved.

Like I said, It's the plugin and can't help you with that.

Just one last question: There is no way whatsoever to force approval of all new threads? Like an auto-approval.

Just turn off the approval mechanism, by editing the permissions for the "registered users" group on each forum so they are allowed to post without approval.

It has never been on, thats the wierd thing. I have also tried using my account (admin) as the creator of those threads but I need to approve those threads as well...

So all the permissions are good as far as I can see. I am more than willing to give you admin-access I you want to take a look. :)

Are you saying all posts on your board need approval, or only those created by this plugin?

Only those created by this plugin. I have never had to approve anything as I have not used this feature. Until now. :lol:
