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 by administrator and/or moderators.

How It Works

After installation of the add-on, sign-in as the Admin, go to the Admin Panel and locate the link saying "Premoderation" - it will lead to Premoderation settings. There it's possible to enable Premoderation

  • for every message on the forum,
  • only for messages coming from the new accounts and pre-defined members,
  • only for messages coming from the pre-defined members,
  • also it's possible to switch it On or Off.

Appearance of Approved Content option sets the type of how approved messages will be posted to the live forum:

  • either as the most recently posted; the appearance time will be re-assigned to the time of approval;
  • either as posted in their original sequence order; the appearance time will be assigned to the time of posting.

There's also possible to define the amount of displayed premoderated users per page.

Pre-moderated messages will be kept in standalone database tables, and will not be moved to the live forum database or being counted in user profiles unless approved. If there's a File Images and Attachments add-on installed, attached content will be displayed amongst with the pre-moderated content and will not appear live on the forum unless approved.

The look & feel of Pre-moderated messages is similar to the default look of miniBB's threads. The link to the pre-moderation panel is available on the top menu; the amounts of incoming Topics and Posts are instantly shown there. New topics are stored under the "Topics" section, and new messages are stored under the "Posts" section. The big amount of messages is split to pages using default miniBB pagination functions. Moderators have access to the Pre-moderated content, and are restricted in viewing topics/posts related to their forums. There it's possible to Approve the incoming content, Reject & delete it, or Save for later review. There's also possible to edit a message before it's approved.

"Users" section is about pre-moderated users list, there it's possible to quickly delete certain users from this list; add new users, and search pre-moderated users by nickname, amount of posts, and premoderation period. Users information contains User ID, Username, Registration date, "Added at" Premoderation date; if there's a "Last Visit" add-on installed, the Most recent appearance will be displayed as well. Users list is paginated in case of large amount of them. Guests could be added to this list, specifying "zero" ID (0).

Forum owners about miniBB:
I searched a long time for a optimal forum for my clanpage. I tried phpBB, but its too big; i mean, i dont need the advanced features, and i think the design isnt as simple and nice as miniBB. After downloading the miniBB 2.0 Pack, i didnt have any problems to install it. I needed some more plugins, and it was so simple to install them. I can just suggest this great forum for all other searchers!!! NICE WORK MINIBB TEAM ;)
