We plan to use jForum on a production and use moderation (waiting moderation). There is a bug caused by the french property file (fr_FR.properties). I don't know why but I know what is causing the bug. When you submit a post, the message is generated with this key PostShow.waitingModeration. The value in french is :
PostShow.waitingModeration= Ceci est un forum mod̩r̩. Votre message est dans la queue en attente d'un mod̩rateur, soyez patient.
