Post Approval Problem

Post by bryan23 » Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:49 am

Hello, I am running classified ads on my phpbb based site.

I have users that duplicate their post after certain time. After approving their post I realize it is not shown up as the "new post date", and their existing old post still exist.

So my question is, is this normal for phpbb to detect duplicate post by the same user and count them as a post (using the old post and NOT the new post)?

EDIT: I am talking about the same forum.


EDIT 2:
This problem has been on going, what i realize was:

Some of the approved topics are showing up in my notifications to get me to approve them again. It could be posts from August, and today september 3rd is showing up in my notification.

Why is this happening to my board?

I am running 3.2.2

users that duplicate their post
Their only post? Their last post? All of their posts? What means "duplicate" to you: also having the same posting time?

Why should an older post not exist anymore? Can you link to one example of this, i.e. link to an "old" post and one you say which "is not shown up as the "new post date"".

Until here: no. Posts can only be duplicated thru copying existing topics, which is a moderator permission. Otherwise it's not possible.

No, neither of those.

ahh sorry for being confusing here. what I meant was

SAME FORUM
I approved a post today from User A
The subject and the content is exactly the same as what User A had posted 2 months ago.
However, when I approve, the new post did not show up.

Why?

Why would it?
If you have two unapproved posts and approve one, that leaves one yet to approve.

Yeah, it gives me confusion. The thing is i receive notification for the new post to be disapprove and approve. I think i will just ignore it for now.

Topics can't be approved, only posts.

Posts can be edited, leading them into needing new approval.
