Is there a hide post/topic feature in phpBB 3.3?

Post by odf »

Hello,

I think this feature is useful -- the ability to hide posts/topics from users/public view (reason may be for example, the post/topic is under moderation), is there some feature that can achieve this in phpBB?

Not sure if it is what you want, but there is an extension called login required.
you can also set forums to no access to guests.
if a post has to be approved by a moderator, it should not be visible to users
Beans: Because just saying we need to socially distance doesn't always work....

I mean existing posts/topics in a public forum, you see a need to moderate or hide them for some reason, but not deleting them.

Something like this??

Not exactly but close. I do not know if it can send the old topic/post to moderation and make it unavailable from the audience. Thank you.

Perhaps you may want to SOFT-delete them?

And how does it work?

I didn't succeed in hiding a post from the Public in an otherwise public forum.

And another question: I've a public forum and want subforums to be only for registered users. Have been trying for hours now but couldn't get it done. Any idea about it?
