Hi guys,

I wondered if you might consider adding a new feature? It'd be nice if moderators could see the content of a forum post in the Forums->Moderation dashboard. This would be like how WordPress comment moderation is done. They use a separate column in the dashboard to show the content.

It's quite simple to do in moderation-listtable.php, although there probably ought to be a setting to turn it on or off -- some people might find it annoying.

@solarian,

We avoid extending moderation features in the dashboard. This is a forum, and forums have many moderators who are not administrators nor editors. We want to keep all moderator tools on front-end as much as possible. The unapproved topics and posts can be found in the Recent Posts page, they just need to select the corresponding menu in the drop-down:

 

Then they can open and see the whole thread and the unapproved post with moderation tools:

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, that still requires a lot of clicking and navigating back and forth, since it doesn't show the entirety of posts on a single page, which is the aim (as requested by a couple of my moderators who use mobile phones to moderate).

So, if you're not willing to add to the dashboard, why not provide a filter so users can hook into the plugin that way, and not have to modify the plugin files?

@solarian,

The requires only one more click per topic. It's better than let all moderators access to your dashboard.  In any case, you're free to do whatever you want. wpForo is full of hooks, hundreds of hooks have been added, and we're adding lots of new hooks with almost all new versions. if you need a certain hook in a certain file, you should contact us via support[at]gvectors.com and send the details.
