Pre-moderate topics in category

(Phillip Kuoch) #1


I was wondering if it was possible to pre-moderate topics in one particular category only?

Pre moderation is a feature we do not yet have, but it gets requested a fair bit and will probably be built this year.

(Michael Downey) #3

What exactly does “pre-moderation” mean?

(Dave McClure) #4

It means topics and/or posts would not appear until they are approved by a moderator.

(Jeff Atwood) #5

… or the peer community, perhaps.

(Neil) #6

Do you have an update as to when pre-moderation is likely to be implemented?

(Jeff Atwood) #7

1.4 or later, perhaps this year sometime.


@codinghorror Out of curiosity, the roadmap or feature list for 1.4 doesn’t seem to mention this, has it been postponed?

(Sam Saffron) #9

This is an easy change, if you sign up for our business or standard plan I will build it for you.

(Jeff Atwood) #10

Pre moderation was built and shipped in 1.3. It can be enabled for new users first (n) posts.


Is it possible to pre-moderate all posts in a specific category (rather than on a user level)?
