Post Unapprove function

Post by MichaelC » Sun Mar 21, 2010 11:00 am

Maybe this is something for phpBB 4 but I think it would also work in 3.1

Like the feature in vB where you can un-approve posts. Basiclly, its doesn't delete it and it just hides it from all but people with Moderator permissions. Sort of like the Soft Delete MOD only better as the post is still there. Just hidden from the members and guests and VIPS ect.,

Soft Delete MOD leaves the post there :lol:

If it didn't, how would the post still exist?

Also, to not approve a post, just don't press the approve button. :P

@Comkid about that last bit, he's talking about unapproving a post that has not yet been through the moderation queue. It's very highly similar to the Soft Delete concept, and in fact does not have much difference at all. The only difference is that it would put the post back into moderation queue instead of just deleting. ;)

Unapproving a post is where a post that has been posted publicly and is avaliable. Unapproving is like just removing guests, members and VIPS ect., view of that post/topic.

Like a delete but it won't actually delete. Just hide from public.

If you want to know what I mean have a look at a vB trial.

It only has those functions for posts in the moderation queue. Basically what I mean by un-approve is a soft delete, you delete the post but it doesn't changes stats ect., because its still in the database just hidden from the public.
