XF 1.1 Help with moderated board


Active member
I have a moderated board on the site i'm making, but i have it set to moderate each post before it's posted, and it automatically makes my post under moderation as an administrator. I thought admin's shouldn't have to have their posts moderated? and I disabled the threads moderated checkbox and still says under moderation with no way to approve the thread. I am logged into the admin account. I have transferred license to a new site I'm developing.

Normally admins / mod would be exempt from moderation because they have this permission:

Admin CP -> Users -> List User Groups -> [click a group] -> Approve / unapprove threads / posts

Make sure you have this permission. It's normally granted to individual mods:

Admin CP -> Users -> Moderators
