Moderate a Forum

Moderating a forum allows the instructor the ability to grant or deny a participant's posting. This option is only available if you have chosen to Moderate the Forum or Forum Topic. 

  1. In the left Tool List of your site, select Forums.
  2. At the top of the screen, select Pending Messages. The number in the parentheses is the number of unread messages.
  3. Check the box next to the message you would like to moderate, then choose Deny or Approve. You will return to the Pending Messages page to continue moderation.
To include a comment when you’re denying a message, select the subject of the message and deny the message. At this point, you will have the opportunity to add a comment.
