On my Forum, I have set the permissions in some of the Forums so that a MEMBER has to have admin or mod approval when a new Thread is started.
However, it has recently come to my attention that if the Member who started the Thread which is awaiting approval, logs out and then logs back in again, he will have the Moderation Box highlighted in the top task bar of the Forum.
Clicking on the "moderation box" brings up the Thread awaiting approval, and if that Member clicks on "approve" at the bottom of the new Thread, the Thread is approved!
Also, any other registered Member will have this same Moderation Notice, and if he clicks on the notice and then clicks on the "approve" link in that Thread awaiting approval, it does indeed get approved !
However, I was under the impression that ONLY the [color=#8B4513]ADMIN or MOD could approve[/color] Threads "awaiting approval".[color=#0000CD][/color]
So what settings am I configuring incorrectly (or perhaps have not configured at all) to make the above described situation occur?
