[Solved] How to set the forum so usergroup does not need moderation
We have just started using wp foro for the forum for my membership site.
As only my members are able to access the forum, I would like members to be able to post topics and posts without the need for moderation. Can you please let me know which item I need to tick in the Usergroups area.
NB It would be REALLY helpful if you had a page which listed all the different items and exactly what they mean. Those of who are not techie and are unfamiliar with using forums struggle with the terminology.
For example, I suspect that I probably need to tick the 'Front - Can pass moderation' item but how can I be sure that that is what this means? Maybe it means something else? I don't know.
1. In Forums > Usergroups admin page edit all Usergroups and enable/check the "Can pass moderation" permission.
2. In Forums > Tools > Antispam admin page set low suspicion level for topic and posts:
- Spam Suspicion Level for Topics - 10
- Spam Suspicion Level for Posts - 10
Also, I'd recommend setting 1 or 2 the "User is New (under hard spam control) during first X posts" option in the same Forums > Tools > Antispam admin page.
