Preliminary moderation

Hello. What settings should be set to close the ability to publish new posts for all users, before it was moderated and confirmed?

Hey @dinozavrix, there is currently no post gating function on Forem. Members are free to publish as they choose.

Our community members live all over the world and we feel they should be free to participate in content sharing and discussion, even whilst moderators are asleep! If you'd like to see post gating as a feature, please consider creating a feature request via GitHub here.

If you want to limit the ability of new users to post, you can navigate to /admin/customization/config > Rate limits and anti-spam and adjust the settings.
