Hi *,

I'm currently evaluating the Liferay Message Board Portlet for my company. In general, it meets many of our requirements.
Only one feature is missing: Pre-Moderated Posts - meaning that posts must be explicitly approved by a moderator before they are visible to other users. Somewhat similar to the approval mechanism in the Journal Portlet. If this is not already worked on, I think that I can implement and provide a patch.

Best regards,
Timo

Timo,

This feature is not available out of the box. If you create it that would be great! The best way to submit your code would be to go to http://issues.liferay.com and create a ticket.

See this wiki

Hi Timo,

Are you now involved in building message board moderation?

I am quite surprised this basic requirement is missing from an enterprise portal framework and it means I will have to pass up updating our current CMS to Liferay and choose something else. I am very disappointed about this as I spent alot of time testing aspects of Liferay on my local machine only to find this essential component appears to be missing.

If you are involved, any chance of a release within 2 months? Lol.

Regards, Hoppy

Hi Hoppy,

I've finished implementing the changes to support moderation. I'm currently checking with the customer if the changes can go into the upstream. If so, we'll have moderated messageboards in much less than 2 months ;)

Best regards,
Timo

Great Timo. I will gladly help you get your changes integrated into Liferay svn if you get the go ahead from your customer. Please add your patch to the issue LEP-3362.

Do you have any screenshots you could share of the UI changes you did for the moderation?

Hi guys,

I have attached the patch to LEP-3362. I'd be happy to see the change going upstream for the next release. Mika, I'd be glad if you could help me with that.

Usage:
-Categories can now be marked as 'moderated' in the 'Edit category'
-In moderated categories, messages sent by normal users are invisible for other normal users. Moderators (Users with the 'Approve message' permission) see the content of the messages.
-A moderator may use the 'Approve' link directly in the thread view or go to the 'Unapproved' tab to approve or delete messages in a bulk.
-Editing an existing message requires reapproval.

All the best,
Timo

Hi, we're very interested in using this enhancement. Am using Liferay 5.2.4 EE. However, when I add a Category to a MB, I don't see an option to mark a Category as moderated.
Is it in 5.2.4 and if so, how exactly do I navigate to set this option for a category?

Denis, this feature is still under development. I'm hoping to get it into 5.3.0 version. I expect to have it in trunk by the end of this week.

ok Mika, thanks for the replay. Is there a target date for 5.3.0?

Am wondering if there's another way in Liferay to get us the functionality we need.
We want our users to be able to submit questions to customer service. Then customer service needs to be able to view these and reply to users.We'd like the conversation to be private (but an option to make public would be a "nice to have"). It's ok to require users to login to post however we'd also like an option to not require login to do a post.
The Message Board moderated category seemed like a fit.

Until that's change is ready, is there any other control in Liferay you can recommend we look at which may fit our needs?

I was told not to expect 5.3 until mid-2010. If that follows Liferay's usual development time line changes, it will be this time next year. ;) IMHO, they are quite ambitious with their time lines. My personal preference would be to have them set further out and be realistic. I think the community here understands that the Liferay team is fairly small and that we're getting an awesome product for free.

The backend required for pre moderation is done and will be in 5.3. Unfortunately I've been too busy with more pressing matters to do the required UI changes. If anyone is able to help with this it would be greatly appreciated.

Done,.. I've voted for pre-moderation/special moderator role.
But since the patch is ready, why it would be a problem just have what we already could have?

If you are referring to the patch contributed by Timo it does not really work properly and scalable manner. Most of the backend is implemented but it is still missing some pieces that I haven't had time to figure out a satisfactory implementation strategy.

Yes,. I was referring to that patch. Thanks for the replay. Could you say what chances do we have to see it in 6.0 release?
We really need to make a decision now what direction we are moving, and this feature is critical.

Thanks for your hard work and contribution to the community anyway emoticon

Hello,

Its good to have workflow feature in LR 6.0, But I have issues as below.

1. When I have multiple administrator/Portlet worflow reviewer, when the MB/blog being posted , the email is being sent to all the admin/reviewer not just for only reviewer or admin who belongs to specific blog of MB.

If there is any configuration needs to be done in order to fire email to only to specific admin of portal content reviewer(with workflow feature). kindly guide me how to doing it.

2. I need to have ability for the registered user to post the comments for blog, as of now this only possible in Message Board.

Again If there is any configuration needs to be done.

Thanks in Advance...

The Proposal Wiki (-/wiki/Proposals/Blog+Improvements) says this has been implemented:

"DONE Ability to moderate comments, Ability to have moderated posts: this can be done by using workflow from Liferay 6.0"

We also need this feature, it is really a requirement for any new public-facing blog. Are there any news on this?
