Guides

The Moderator CP

The moderator CP can be accessed by clicking on your name and selecting ModeratorCP on the front end of your site. This is a central place for the moderators on your site to manage items which need attention, along with other useful moderation tools.

 

Reported Content

The reported content section will show you any content that has been reported by your members on the site. You can click into any of these to view the content of the report or select them for mass processing.

Reported content

 

The approval queue

The approval queue gives your moderators a workable queue of content that needs to be actioned and approved by a member of your site staff.  You can then step through each item and action as appropriate. You can start the approval queue by selecting the button provided.

Click start to start the approval queue

Each item in the queue will show you the content and give you the option to quickly delete, skip or approve the item. Once an item is actioned you are automatically moved to the next item in the queue.

Deleted Content

When you delete an item on the system, this will by default be 'soft' deleted. These deleted items will show up within your Moderator CP in the deleted content section for 30 days. You can change the number of days these are kept for at the following location in your ACP

System -> Settings -> Posting

Item that was deleted and can be restored

From here you can select to restore items, should you or one of your staff make a mistake in deleting an item.

IP Address Tools

The IP Address tools will allow you to look to site related information on a specific IP address. To use this, enter an IP address into the box provided as below, and select continue. Alternatively you can check all IP addresses by a member on the site.

IPs or members can be searched

 

In the example below I have entered by own local IP. As you can see there is various information related to how that IP has been used on the site, along with location information if it is available.

Information related to an IP

Tip
This tool can be handy if you see an IP address of a user who is causing issues on your site and you would like to see if there are any other related members of related content with the same IP address.

 

Member Management

You can quickly manage members from within the moderator CP from the Member Management section. Entering members name will then allow you to edit the member (subject to permissions). You will also see some useful lists of information below this on members who are banned, restricted, queued, or banned from chat for quick access to these.

Recent Warnings

Clicking on the recent warnings area will give you a list of all the recent warnings on the site, so you can quickly get a view of who has recently been warned.

Announcements

This section of the moderator CP will allow your moderators to set up and manage announcements attached to different areas of the site. You can see which area active at a glance with the active flags which are set here. To set up a new announcement on the site, simply click on the Add Announcement button.

Announcement list

Announcements can be shown in any of the following locations

  1. Top of the page
  2. Above the page content
  3. In the sidebar

Announcement locations

Each location has some slightly different features; the page top banner is dismissible by the member if they no longer want to see it, whereas the banner above the content and the sidebar announcements cannot be dismissed.

Each application has the ability to select which applications and pages you wish to show announcements, along with which member groups will see these. You can also select a color in which to use for your announcement

Announcement set up

When an announcement is tapped to open, it will show a modal window with any further details you have entered.

Hidden Content

Finally in the moderator CP, you can view a list of hidden content on the site. You can view all of these at once or you can limit this by area of the site. This gives you a one click location to view all hidden content, rather than clicking into individual sections to find these.
