Approve topics before posting forum specific?

  • maxlevel


    I have 5 different forums.
    Only one of them should serve as a Q&A forum where people can ask us questions. Nobody should be able to reply before we reply. I could think of two ways to make that happen:

    1. The forum is moderated and all topics have to be approved before they are posted together with our answers. After posting other people can reply too.

    2. All the topics are initially private. So we can answer it and then make it public for receiving further replies.

    I could not find code or plugins to make that happen and would be very grateful for any advice.

    I can’t immediately think of any existing code.

    Option 1 is the quick answer, but more manual.

    It could be coded, a simple way would be to stop replies on the front end if a reply didn’t exist unless an admin.

    you would need to amend form-reply.php – do you

    1. have a child theme and
    2. know how to ftp files to and from your PC?

    If so contact me via my website



    I think this plugin works

    bbPress – Moderation Tools



    @robin-w 1 and 2 both yes and I will contact you.

    Thanks, I already tested the above plugin as well as this
    bbPress Moderation By Ian Stanley

    The problem is that both plugins work for all forums and I need it for only one of my forums.
