Add a thank you when post submitted

(Shawn) #1

We are getting people submitting the same post multiple times. Is there a way to say “Thank you for submitting. Your post is under review and if approved will be live soon.” popup or something when they hit submit?

Do you have required approvals on? This may be a regression if so.

We definitely had occurrences when we had must approve first 2 posts enabled at Stonehearth where someone would submit their topic 2 or 3 times. I never tested it myself, but I would assume that they weren’t receiving a message, or the message wasn’t clear.

Hmm I wonder if we should prevent submitting more than 1 pending posts to the same topic @eviltrout? That would handle the “I can’t be bothered to read the dialogs that appear” assuming there has been no regression on approval notification dialogs appearing.

As an FYI, this was never an issue for us (though it is still a good idea). The issue was creating the same topic multiple times, almost always a support request/crash report.

Do you mean do i have approval required on all posts? If so then yes. That is working fine.

Ok. Yes here all posts always have to be approved. It’s a closed members bb. And what we find is they don’t see it when they post so they recreate. Again and again. Then we go in to approve and there are tons of each submitted post.

Just tested, there isn’t a regression. The following dialog appears (pretty hard to miss!):

Hey thanks for testing that!

So I guess what is proposed is a block on submitting more than one pending post per topic, or more than one pending topic? How hard would this be @eviltrout because it seems sensible to me as a preventative step?
