XF 1.2 Question on Moderation


Active member
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.

Follow message moderation rules is the permission.

Ensure that is set to Allow.
