Retrieving content of disapproved posts

Post by JellyB »

Hi all,

I'm developing a pre-moderated board on 3.2.3.

I'm wondering if there's a way to retrieve the content of a post once it's disapproved?
Ultimately I'd like to be able to reverse the disapproval where necessary, but having access to the content is helpful too.

I've had a look around and can't seem to find anything. While the moderator log shows the title of the post and that it's been disapproved, I cannot find the content of said posts anywhere.

Thanks!

Once a post is disapproved, it is deleted from the database, so, no. Instead of disapproving, you could move the post to a forum only moderators could access, called, maybe "Disapproved posts".

Such moved post/topic is still marked as "waiting for approval", shows up for all moderators and attracts their attention. The above is not a good solution so I'm gonna write a modification, which automatically moves disapproved topics/posts to a specified forum rather than deleting it from the database. with an automatic "waiting for approval" flag deselection. Unfortunately, I work on 3.0.x version of phpBB (it's too hardly modified for being upgaded to a higher version) so my code won't work directly on 3.2.x, but it may be some kind of base for others to create a 3.2.x extension. Will post my code soon.
