Introduces friction for low-effort posting. Asks if they are sure and really want to post when:
  • Replying to old threads - global, forum or per thread.
  • Low-word count posts - global, forum or per thread.
  • High-word count posts - global, forum or per thread.
  • Mostly quotes/spoilers posts - global, forum or per thread.
  • Too fast reply after an existing reply - Per thread. (Requires Redis Cache)
  • Blacklisting or whitelisting - per thread (Requires Content Ratings)
If the user accepts, this is recorded and this logs shows when viewing warnings/reports for that post.

Displays recent users who have posted despite the post friction warning, optional limit per page (default 30 per page)

Moderate specific thread

Force all replies for a specific thread to be sent to the approval queue, and optionally only allow a single pending approval post for a user in that thread

Works with the following Content Types
  • Threads
Per thread options

Under Thread Tools -> Post Friction; (listing users who posted anyway, with Content Rating support):

(blank/zero = do not apply)

Example output:

Known limitations
  1. Not tested without javascript enabled, which will block posting to threads that are too old or low word count.
