Premoderation add-on for miniBB

USD $9.99 
from 2CO / PayPal®

Despite the main sense of any forums is when they are populating live, with the help of this add-on it is possible to enable strict control over the forums, so called pre-moderation, recommended for communities where new users, or guest postings must be approved before they go live. This is an ideal solution against unsolicited advertisements; however it requires an instant watching of forums.

How It Works

After installation of the add-on, sign-in as the Admin, and click the link saying "Premoderation panel", right below the "Admin panel" link at the bottom of the forums page. The link leads to the main Pre-moderation settings, where it's possible to switch different queue modes, assign/remove pre-moderated users, specify queue's moderators who will have the rights to access and moderate pending messages besides of forums Admin, and set the emailing option regarding status of queued messages.

When pre-moderation mode is set, all postings, which are compatible with this mode, will be be saved in the pending queue. Such messages won't appear on forums, but still it will be visible that they are posted (for example, the phrase "This message is pending approval" should appear instead of the full posting text), so this shouldn't confuse the users, regarding if their messages have been saved. Pre-moderation staff is able to check the queue clicking the "Messages pending approval" link at the bottom of forums page, which will indicate amount of new topica and/or messages stored in the queue. Postings will follow all in one list, that allows to review them on one page at a glance, and moderate them just with few mouse clicks .

Must-Have Features

In the pre-moderation settings, it is possible to set various methods of how the new messages will be approved: either for everybody (an extra strong mode), either for new registrations only and the users who are put in the approval list (recommended). It is possible to add new users to this list anytime; guest users may be added if you specify "zero" ID (0). Approval moderators can be assigned from the existing forum moderators list; or it's possible to add forum members, which will not be allowed to moderate the forums, however still they would be allowed to manage pre-moderation queue.

In the pre-moderation queue new topics will be listed at the top of single messages. You may go straight to the original posting itself and check how it looks on forums; having certain privileges, you may edit any original message at the same time, using built-in editing functions of miniBB. You may approve, delete or save messages for later review; put some users our of pre-moderation queue amongst acception of their messages; delete or suspend user accounts straight from the queue.

You may read and ask more about the features of this plugin or its functions in our related community thread.
