[resolved] Contributor Auto Approve Post (5 posts)

    Hi everyone..

    I have problem with my WP 3.1, I accept registration but I want to manually approve the post before publish them. But what happened with my wp is the contributor's post is auto published.

    Any suggestion to hack the wp so the contributor's post is not auto published?

    Thanks a lot.

    Have you modified the default roles? As you can see here ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities ) by default Contributors can read/edit/delete posts but not publish them.

    I have no idea how I modified them.

    Are you sure your contributors have the role of "Contributor" and not "Editor" or something else?

    You could install the Roles and Capabilities Plugin to modify the roles. Rather than messing with the core WP roles I'd recommend creating a new role named whatever you'd like, giving it all the capabilities you want, and then assigning your contributors to this role
