I am creating a new forum used phpBB3. New users can post, but I have to manually approve them. How can I disable this so users can post without me having to approve the content manually?
Thank for William D. Edwards's suggest. This is my specific solution:
Step 1: Log in to phpBB admin panel
Step 2: Navigate to Permissions
Step 3: Adjust posting permissions settings
From the user group list select “Registered users” or "Newly registered users". This way we will be editing permissions for all registered users. To open permissions management page, click on “Submit” button.
Step 4: Adjust Advanced Permissions
Choose "Can post without approval"
I had this problem too. This is a permission issue which is enabled by default in phpBB. As I am using XenForo these days, I'm not sure what exact solution I used but here are helpful articles:
On the most recent version of PHPBB at the time of this posting, 3.1.8. It is slightly different than the correct post above.
Open the administration panel, click on the permissions tab, then group forum permissions. See "look up usergroup", select registered users click submit, Select the forum or alternatively select the all forums checkbox, at the right select advanced permissions, on the posts tab is "Can post without approval" set to yes.
