[resolved] How to manually publish entries (= moderate submissions) (5 posts)

    I'd like to manually publish form submissions: e.g. I receive a notification mail and then I accept (or not) to show the submission on the site.
    In other words I don't want that submissions are automatically displayed without even having read and authorized them.
    Is that possible?

    Does somebody know how to do moderation? I really need it and I don't know how to do it!
    Thanks! :-)

    The way I do it is through the companion (paid) CFDB Edit plugin. I add another column called (for example) "Reviewed", and edit the database (through the Edit plugin) to put in a "Y" once I've reviewed the submission. Then my shortcodes which display submissions are set up to only display records with a "Y" in the "Reviewed" field.

    This manual process might not suit you if you get lots of submissions etc, but it works okay for me.

    Hi Gillian,
    thanks a lot!
    I've just bought the data editor plugin and tried to do as you suggested, but with no result. I've added a column then I've add filter="reviewed=y" to the shortcode, but it doesn't work. :-(
    Do you have any further suggestion?

    Sorry, I've just realized that fields are case sensitive... of course!
    Thanks anyway for your helpful advice! :-)
