No, that combines Can Post and Can Start Topic, which should be 2. :P

So, what is "Can reply to posts"?

My understanding was (I'm too lasy to test it now, but, I think I'm right) that "Post" refers to a topic, and "reply" refers to a reply.

EDIT: Ok, last bit was a lie. I decided I would test it, and, it appears I'm correct.

I can't spot one of them, and can never remember one in the past, so, I don't think so.

Ok, I think I got confused on that part before.


"Can post in forum" should be something like "Can start topics in forum".

I would also really like to have a permissions to only validate the first post of a topic.. so.. somthing like the topic start permissions mentions before. I would only need to review the first posts and the rest doens't need approval..

Reported here.
Please do a check of the terminology used both in *CP and public areas, clarity is IMHO something that should be achieved (as far as possible) not only for phpBB admins and users but also for the sake (and mental sanity) of the support staff. Come on, we don't want people to commit suicide after having being asked for the millionth time "What does this mean..." ;)

This is a very valid fear.

Moderation Queue is applied to both posts... er... new topics AND replies.
