Moderate a User's Posts

Hi folks!

I've searched all over and for the life of me can't seem to find any information on something as simpler as moderating a user's posts.

Let's say a user comes in and looks like trouble. You want all his posts to be moderated and require approval before committing them to the site.

Should be simple to change a user over to requiring moderation but I can't seem to figure it out :roll:

Because there may be other similar users down the track create a new group "Naughty", put the user in the group, assign that group the Newly Registered User Access role for all forums, done.

Hmmm....I hope I got it. I was thinking it would be much easier if I could just change one user to moderation review with the click of a mouse.....I didn't think it would require going into the admin at all :D

I followed your steps but it might be a little different - don't know if this will work or not;

-Created new group called Moderator Review
-Made user a member of Moderator Review
-Set the Group Forum Permissions on ALL forums for members of Moderator Review group to On Moderation Queue

If that works will I get an email notifying me that I need to approve posts when said user makes a post?

Try it and see, should work.

No. That is not a feature of phpBB 3.0.

Thanks for the help - I never would have figured that out without it :D

Do you know if their will be any notification of any sort that posts need approval? (pop up box or something?)
