Everything needs moderating...

Post by nzuraw » Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:22 am

PHPBB 3.2.8 installed

Despite efforts to turn off moderation, its still there... argh Not just for Registered Users, but also Administrators

I've checked:

ACP / Permissions / Group Forum Permissions / Registered Users / All forums / Standard Access (+ polls) / Advanced Permissions / Can post without approval = Yes

ACP / Permissions / Group Forum Permissions / Administrators / All forums / Standard Access (+ polls) / Advanced Permissions / Can post without approval = Yes

Even just my user account

ACP / Permissions / User Forum Permissions / username / All forums / Standard Access (+ polls) / Advanced Permissions / Can post without approval = Yes

Plus

ACP / Users and Groups / Group Forum Permissions / Registered Users / All forums / Standard Access (+ polls) / Advanced Permissions / Can post without approval = Yes

ACP General / Board Configuration / User Registration Settings / New Member post limit = 0

ACP General / Board Configuration / User Registration Settings / Set Newly Registered Users group to default = No

Any assistance would be welcome.

ACP, User registration settings, New member post limit, 0. Then remove everyone from the Newly Registered users group (ACP, Manage groups, Newly registered users, Memebers, delete). Done.

Thanks Steve,

ACP, User registration settings, New member post limit, 0 - this was already set.

Manage groups, Newly registered users - there are no members in the group. Can I delete the group - would that help?

OK, you need to use the Permissions MASKS (NOT just looking at the permissions). In the ACP, Permissions tab, Permission masks, select "View forum-based permissions". Then select a forum where this condition is occurring, and then select a user who should be able to post without moderation, but can't. Then View permissions. You will get something like this:

Click the O-> icon to the left of Can post without approval, and you will get a permissions trace. Post a screenshot of it.

Is nzuraw in the Global Moderators group? Because it appears that is were the Never comes from. Change the Global Moderators permission for Can post without approval to No. Or Yes.
