Posts with 3 or more links

    In your notes above it states:

    “Posts with 3 or more links will be manually approved by our forum moderators.”

    In my WordPress site my settings are also to a max of 2.

    I created a topic with 3 links but the post did not go to moderation. Is this because I am an admin and the moderation does not apply?

    probably – suggest you test with users of different capability if you want to be sure

    Ok, I have asked a “Participant” and will provide feedback here.

    just set yourself up a test account

    so create a user called say ‘myusertest’ and give it a fictitious email account – it has to be in the correct format so say ‘abc@def.com’ and set a password

    you can then log on as that user and you’ll get participant access to see.

    OK, I am a bit confused.

    I create test account and started a topic.

    I immediately see that there is no status | type drop-down lists so that is good.

    But I put 3 hyperlinks in the topic and hit submit and it went through the system. So why did it do this when we have said comments with over 2 links should flag for moderation?

    :)Side question – do the bbPress authors actively view these forums etc.? It all seems rather quiet. Apart from your grateful efforts. I raised one of those trac tickets:

    Moderate posts that have 3 or more links

    But it does not work.

    I dug into this a bit further

    The moderation in bbpress is looking for ‘<href…’ so if you just post links ie

    you post this

    https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/posts-with-3-or-more-links/

    not this

    <a href="https://bbpress.org/forums/topic/posts-with-3-or-more-links/">some link</a>

    then no check is done – it is looking for links not urls

    There is some capability in the code via

    $reply_content = apply_filters( 'bbp_new_reply_pre_content', $reply_content );

    to take out more than 2 links, but there is not an easy way to put 3 urls into moderation

    I tried sending a post using a non-admin user, with the TEXT editor and thus 3 hrefobjects and it still simply went through the system. Just thought I mention.
