Unfortunately, I'm having problems with User Promotions similar to that raised here, here and here.
I would like new accounts to have their first five posts moderated, prior to then being validated to post without moderation.
So, I followed this here (User Group Promotions) to do just that but unfortunately, members are having their posts sit in a moderating queue after they've had 5 messages approved.
I don't think I've set it up wrong but to rule out human error;
I have waited for the Cron to run, I then ran it manually and logged in (understand a user is required to login before a promotion takes effect) but no joy - members are still having their posts moderated.
I saw this post by @Brogan but I don't have an Akismet key.
Any help really would be welcome
