Moderating messages in a forum

Note: The following instructions assume you've created a moderated forum; see Revising or deleting a forum or topic or Creating new forums and topics.

To moderate messages in Forums:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Forums.

  2. At the top, click Pending Messages. The number in the parentheses is the number of messages awaiting your attention.

  3. Check the box next to the message you'd like to moderate, and click Deny or Approve. You'll be returned to the Pending Messages page to continue moderation.

    Note: You cannot add a comment from the Pending Messages page if you deny a message. To include a comment, click the subject of the message before denying the message. You'll then have the opportunity to add a comment. If you are expecting attachments and need to read before you approve or deny the message, open the message to read before doing so.
