    PHPBB - Moderate members

    Hello.

    I've just installed PHPBB & it looks good.

    ive googled, & found there is a moderation / review stage - where i can check / approve posts before going live.

    However, when i go to the admin area, I can't find the place to turn this on. can anyone advise.

    (even if turned on for new users) - approved users i can allow to post freely.

    Thanks.

    I go into the ACP admin area

    >> Permissions >> Forum Permissions.

    Then click on 'groups' (top right), then change permissions of the following groups to READ ONLY.

    - Guests
    - Newly registered users
    - Registered users
    - Registered COPPA users.


    Somewhere in the settings is 'moderated' setting, so any new post is moderated (I'm not familiar with this as yet - so not sure how to find it...)

    when (or *IF* ) someone posts a message that is relevant to my forum, I'll change their status to unmoderated. (though, i'm not certain how to do that - as yet )

    One more tip disable search option for guest users and make sure to clear out search text tables in db(it will be spammed most and caught by admins)
