Hi,

How do I automatically require new members to have approval before posting? I've looked but can't find out how.

Thanks,

Swede
You mean you want them to have all posts moderated? Or do you mean you want them to wait for activation? In that case it is in your ACP.

You could try the following plugin:

It is for 1.6, but works also for 1.8 when you change

Some time ago I made a plugin for a fellow member. The main features are:
  • The first n posts of new members are moderated (by setting n to a very large number you can make that all posts of members must be moderated);
  • Moderators get a message (e-mail or PM) when a new message/thread has been posted;
  • Authors of moderated posts/threads get a message (e-mail or PM) when their message/thread has been  approved;
  • Subscribers get also a message (according to their subscription settings) when a new meaage/thread has been approved.
I think this comes also close to what you want. Below the link to the message to which the plugin is attached:

Thanks the tip but I don't think I'm ready to start with plugins just yet. Want to get more comfortable with basic MyBB first.
