Introducing pre-moderation

March 27, 2015

Pre-moderation has been the most common feature request we've received lately. However, we've always been hesitant to develop it. Each post has to be approved manually before it appears, creating a frustrating user experience.

But we're open-minded, so we asked each potential customer for their rationale. Each case had its own merits, like sensitive subject matter, a vulnerable audience, or some other content curation requirements. So we went to work.

You can choose to moderate every post, or only those that contain media or attachments. You can also set a trusted user level, so regular commenters can skip moderation. You can even target a specific category, making PlushForums the ideal platform to conduct a live Q&A session, where you pre-screen the questions in real-time.
