    I honestly searched through this forum and internet. Strange, but I never seen the solution…

    So, I want to allow registered users post their own posts to blog. But I want also to pre-moderate them.

    I installed “Role Manager” plugin and allowed “Edit Posts”. Users can create posts easily. BUT. All of them are stored as drafts and invisible even for administrator.

    If I add “Publish Posts” to capabilities, then they are able to save not only drafts, but final versions as well. BUT. Without pre-moderation.

    Maybe I’m just missing something in WordPress settings? Or it is impossible ideologicaly?

  • All of them are stored as drafts and invisible even for administrator.

    Are you sure you are logged in as admin?
    You should see them as “Others Drafts” when you are on the Write > Write Post subpanel.

    Yes, as admin, level 10.

    I see <i>Your Drafts:</i> only.

    Oops. I was wrong. You’ll see them under “Manage”. (at least I do)

    What version of WP do you use?

    The latest: 2.0.3.
    The user that made the draft is a “Contributor” and when I go to Manage > Posts I see at the top:
    Your Drafts (which are mine) and
    Other’s Drafts:

    Aha!

    User cannot have Role other than Contributor (or just other standard) to be visible in “Other drafts”.

    So, I changed Role to “Contributor” and changed capabilities of Contributor. Now it works.

    Thanks!
