    This is strange - in each post in the thread it says awaiting moderation, the thread is not moderated as seen below, people are posting in the thread, why then is giving the moderating icon?

    2 things come to mind.

    1) Have you checked your user permissions
    2) Are these people part of your staff

    Does this happen on *all* of your threads?

    No permissions have changed, she is a moderator @Adam Howard. No @Jeremy it just this forum on my site that is completely moderated, but it usually only moderates the thread, not the posts as it did.

    Staff members usually can post inside moderated content, just as they can also approve or disprove content. Of course all this can be changed via the user group settings / moderator settings that you applied upon that user.

    So why would it moderate the posts? Not the entire thread. Why were embers able to post. How do I prevent this from happening?

    Have you set messages in the forum to be moderated in the forum options?

    If this forum is set to moderated in the forum options then all posts would be moderated.

    From the forum options

    You say that normally it just moderates the thread, not the posts? This isn't functionality built into Xenforo and would require an add-on that would moderate just the first post. Are you using any such add-on?

    No add on for this. Normally - a member starts a thread in this forum and it's then moderated with the little moderated badge on the thread list page. This time, my moderator started a thread in this moderated forum and the badge was not present on the thread list page as it normally would - each member who posted on her thread went into moderation but they must have been able to view her thread to respond to it in a post.

    Moderators with the Approve / unapprove threads / posts permission won't have their threads/posts put into moderation (it'd be pointless as they could just approve them anyway).
