Hi there,

I have a problem with forum permissions. The point is that i need that only one forum dont need to acept topics and answers, i mean, it needs to be free for every member no matter the group, the resto of the forums must to be moderated to aprove them. I cant find how to do it. I need help. 

Also i would like that the group that is moderator the topic and answer are automatically aproved, now they have first send and then aprove their own topcis/anwers.

Thank you in advance

Hi @stuweb,

I'll suggest you read the FAQ topic about wpForo Usergroups, Forum Accesses, and WordPress User Roles: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/wordpress-user-roles-wpforo-usergroups-and-forum-accesses/

hi @alvina

thank you for your answer, but it is not answering my question, i already have checked with permissions groups etc and i cant make it work as i need.... i will try to explain

this would be the users

Person

Company

Moderator

 

this would be the groups

no access

read

write

moderate 

 

this would be the forum with the permissions i should have in each one

 

Forum A - company can write without need to acept (post automaticaly) and also moderate, person can write without need to acept (post automaticaly)

Forum B - company can write without need to acept (post automaticaly) and also moderate, person only read

Forum C - company can write without need to acept (post automaticaly) and also moderate and person can write but has to be acepted by moderator

 

The problem is

- I cant make the company can write without need to be acepted

- I cant make the formum A person can post without be acepted, unless i put them moderator permissions which also would moderate all and everyone (and still need to acept thier own one)

 

I guess i am not doing something fine or dont understand fine whow groups and permissions work, can you help me? thank you

Hi @stuweb,

Thank you for clarification.

As far as we understand you want to disable turn off moderation for some forums, then we're really sorry but there is no way to do that.

However, you can turn off moderation in the wpForo plugin at all. To get more info please read this article: https://gvectors.com/how-to-disable-topics-and-posts-moderation/

yes, in this case, you wouldn't be able to moderate any forum at all.

Thats not good 🙁

 

I would suggest you to add the feature to activate/deactivate moderation in the forum options in future updates.

 

Thank you for your help. Have a good one
