New Topic Needs Approval

Post by EsmereldaPea »

Is anyone working on porting this extension over to 3.3x?

viewtopic.php?p=14246716#p14246716

I have a "Marketplace" forum. I'd like to require moderation approval for New Topics but not replies.

TIA

Always check the release area for the latest version AND the Extension Support Area

A 3.3 compatible version is available on the author's GitHub

Have you seen that version 1.0.4 is available on Github?
Unfortunately not yet in the extensions database, however, it seems to be in the process of validation.

The link I posted actually points to version 1.0.6 ;)

This is currently confusing to me. The only release tag is pointing to 1.0.4. I certainly noticed that master is at level 1.0.6.
For me as an unexperienced user, it is not clear if I always can use the latest master version. Based on assumption, it seems to be the version currently in validation queue.
At least for me, this is not obvious.

Extension Support topic : Re: Not working in phpBB 3.3
The author poster that link and installation instructions can be found on GitHub.
As always with any non-validated extensions, always take a database backup before installing it (in fact I do that even for validated extensions).

I've had a quick look at the changes and I'ld take the risk installing it.
Should something go wrong: (I doubt it) : restore the database you just backuped, delete /production from /cache and clear browser cache and you should be OK.
