How to deactivate message approving ?

Post by Moonclaw »

Hello,

A fresh new phpBB that I've juste install asks me to approve messages posted by members.
I would like to deactivate this but I don't know where to look in the control panel.


Thank you for your help.

Most probably that is the New member post limit.
New members are placed in the Newly Registered Users group until they have posted that amount of posts. The Newly Registered Users group standard have less permissions, e.g. not being able to post without approval.

You can set that limit to 0 to disable it:
ACP - User Registration settings - New member post limit: ==> Set it to 0

After setting it to zero you will need to go in to manage groups and remove everyone from the newly registered users group.

I have changed that. But anyway it was the very first post of that user.

Second from the same user, same problem again.

It's a rather confidential forum so there's actually no other users for now.
