Where to view posts/topics for moderation at admin?

sanket.jack 09 Jun, 2015
Hello Team,

Indeed an awesome component for forums! Great Work & thank you!

However, I am unable to see any entries (posts/topics) at the admin end to approve/delete/view etc.

How & where can I see those?

Thanks.

Hi sanket.jack,

Just for clarity: I'm only a user of ChronoForums - I don't know anything about the code.

Here, I see a bar at the top of the page, under the date line that has an Unpublished button, clicking that shows me a list of ;unpublished posts'. They also show up in pink when I scroll down and hover over posts in the Active tab list (which is the one I use 99% of the time).

Hello Greyhead,

Thank you for replying to my post!

My concern is say a user comes and makes a post, and it is scheduled for moderation; as an Admin I am unable to see any posts when I log in to the back-end of the system.

There has to be a section where I can see all the posts in the admin component right?

Pl let me know, it's really urgent!😟

Hi sanket.jack,

I have never looked at the back-end - I can see the posts and moderate them from the front-end provided I am logged in as a moderator.

Hi GreyHead,

I tried that option as well, logged in as administrator. Now how can I assign this user as the moderator as well?

Hi sanket.jack,

It looks as though here Moderator permissions have been given to the SuperAdmin group. I think that you could add a new Joomla! User Group (not necessarily with Joomla! Admin permissions) and add your forum Moderators to that.

Tried doing that as well.. gave super admin all permissions, but no luck!😟

Hi sanket.jack,

Sorry, I don't have any other suggestions, except to try another browser and/or clear the browser cache.

Hi,

Its not possible to moderate topics/posts at the backend, and as Bob noted, you can do this on the frontend if your user's group has the moderate permissions, if this doesn't work then please check the FAQ about the forums permissions, as you may have some problem with the config.

Regards,
Max
