How to set Node to require Moderation


Well-known member
Howdy all,
Was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction to the switch to set a specific forum node into moderation (requiring all posts/threads to be approved before becoming visible). Mike mentioned this feature would be in this release, but I can't find the option to do so. It's possible it's not even in there yet, who knows :cool:. Thought I'd ask. I can only see the option on the usergroup permissions page (and user specific usergroup permission page), but not the node or specific user (node) permission pages.

I solved my own problem :D. Went to investigate a possible bug, made a forum, and look at what I found:

Go to the node tree, then click which ever forum you want to add it to, then check the box for "Moderate all messages posted in this forum" and then save it.
