    Hi all,

    I want to have my users post news articles to my forum, I will then turn these into a resource, however I want to make sure these are edited and monitored by my moderation team first.

    The way I want this to work is to have a prefix like "news"
    If someone posts under news, I want the post to be inactive and a alert sent to the mods, they can then read the post, edit it and convert it to a resource. Once that is ready to go they can approve the thread and keep the prefix.

    Is this currently possible?

    That would require custom development/an add-on.

    An alternative way of doing it would be to moderate all new threads in a specific 'News' forum.
    Even then, conversion to a resource would still require custom development.

    The conversion to resource part looks like there is a plugin so I have that part looked after. I am more curious about the making the post inactive or needing approval based on thread prefix, is that apossibility or will I need to create some kind of listener
