I took my site down for a few weeks and I might have set some setting to moderate new posts. I since re-opened it, and every new post - it requires moderation approval. I went into forum options on the node, and made sure this: Moderate all messages posted in this forum If enabled, a moderator will have to manually approve any messages posted in this forum. I made sure that was not selected. Is there any other place that would cause users to be in moderated mode? I checked all permissions on usergroups, nothing in there says "moderation", so its not there.
