I'm sure this has to be an easy one but for some reason I am getting stumped. What I want is for most areas to be accessible and allow them to post and respond etc with out moderation and that seems pretty easy. Where the problem comes in is that there are some areas such as the Front page news that I want differant, is I want them to be able to post something on the front or in special areas of the forums but I want those areas moderated, in other words I want those posts to require approval before the go up. But any replies or comments or ratings to that approved topic I want them to go up unmoderated. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance,

The "Permissions Tree Editor" and the special Comcode instruction "if_in_class" spring to mind.

But I'll leave it to somebody more qualified to try and explain this as I will probably only confuse the issue … !!


edit: Rick - sorry to have misled you. That should read "if_in_group".

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Actually I think this is the default if I remember correctly. If groups are given submit permissions, but not bypass validation permissions, then you have to 'validate' (approve) anything before it shows up in blocks/indexes/categories/etc.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
