Have you ever wondered how big online news sites that incorporate comments and user generated content manage issues with defamation, libel or other dodgy content?
Well, the answer is often – badly… but that doesn’t have to be the case any more with this powerful moderation plugin that allows specified moderators to quickly review all reported posts and comments and – if appropriate – remove them and send the user a warning… all from one handy location!
First up it allows you to configure a massive range of messages and options including which users you want to be moderators (they don’t hav eto be site admin), whether they can remove users and/org blogs, different reasons for reporting different styles of content and notes that can be sent to users, see below for the full range of options.
It’ll then add a simple ‘Report this Post’ / ‘Report this Comment’ option to each post and comment which, when clicked on, looks like this:
This will place the post, comment or blog in the backend management queue and allow a moderator to take the approporaite action as illustrated below:
And it’ll even show you a handy record of warnings made against each user in site admin > users.
Pretty neat huh! All you need to run a successful, and safe, blogging portal!
