Hi,

Scenario .....

1. User posts a message to a moderated forum. Message awaits approval from Moderator.
2. Moderator approves message.
3. User then edits original message, can delete, modify and add to original text.
4. Changed message is visible to all users without re-approval by a Moderator.

In the Admin Control Panel, the forum and the category it belongs to both require moderation. The group that the user belongs to has "No" in the permissions for "Can edit messages" (I think this means can edit any message, not just the ones they own/have written themselves).

Have any ideas how I can either disable the "edit" facility for messages written by yourself, or force an editted message to require approval in a moderated forum?

Thanks,
Paul.

Two possible options:

1) Edit the post_show_action_buttons_inc.htm template file and use the topic.isModerated() function to decide what buttons you want to display.

2) Modify the PostCommon.topicPosts(...) method to check if topic is moderated and set the post canEdit property the way you want it.
