Hello,

How do I remove the validation required for new topics?

I changed all the permission for every usergroup under forum root to be unvetted add (except guess) and that did not solve the problem.

Any advice would appreciated.

Thank you.

 Hi Guest.

Go to your admin zone, then security, then global specific permissions. Open the drop-down menu and go all the way to the bottom (submissions). Click "Proceed" and the top few options deal with bypassing validation.

Close but no cigar. Permissions aren't inherited up category trees in ocPortal, so you would need to do this for each forum individually. That shouldn't be a big problem though.
What psydoc has suggested would set global permissions across ocPortal, which would achieve the same effect, but not just for the forum.

  • 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.
