Excellent bbPress extension to help combat spam
By , for WP 4.1.1

I like to keep my forums open to all, but spam is an obvious problem.

This bbPress addition does exactly what it promises and helps me combat spam.

Essential add-on for bbpress
By , for WP 4.0

Does exact what it promises. It was easy to to modify the plugin to my needs( eg "new" instead of ">" ), hiding "mark as read" when no user is logged aso.

Thanks a lot for this plugin !

Best regards,

Great addition for any kind of sites

very good plugin hope the authors continue development of this useful plugin

Needed and worthy plugin few refinements needed though
By , for WP 3.8.3

Really does the job, but approval process and options needs to be refined.
Would be great to be able to bulk approve comments, allow certain roles permission to not be moderated, one click approval function on the topic page. With a bit more input this would be really great!

I want to like this, but

1) approving is too much of a hassle, you have to click on the post to go to post edit screen, then publish. There should be a bulk, or a quick publish when you hover over title.

Also, I don't want this to moderate people who have commented in the past.

In the options, there is this:

Do not moderate (check or uncheck box) A topic or reply by a previously approved author

I have tried both checked and unchecked, and it still holds in moderation replies by previously approved authors.... So I have gone on to disactivate this plugin. Especially because I will be in vacation and need the forum replies to flow without this issue.

However, I want to like it and make it work well for anonymous posts.

Easy to use

Very useful and easy to use. Great job!

Very Nice, BUT ...

I like this bbPress, but is missing some key features for the admin.

I am very well in phpBB, but I needed a basic forum within my blog and did not want to use phpBB for this.

On the members side it is excellent all they need.

For the admin there really should be an APPROVE button for this plugin.
Way to much hassle for this even in bulk option.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works great and allows me to moderate new topics and posts by new users.

awkward display title after creating a topic
By , for WP 3.7.1

I love your plugin Ian. But I have this one thing in mind that made the new version of yours kind of awkward. After I create a topic, I don't receive or see a notification or warning above that my topic is being moderated. I am using different Create Topic page. Also even though I am not logged in I can see the topic saying awaiting for moderation and it's awkward for a non-user to see a moderated topic even though he/she can't click it. I am hoping that the topic will only be seen by the moderator, admin and the user who posted it, not everybody else.

I am hoping for your kind response soon.
