How To Use Moderation Panel in Taggbox Widget

Moderation Panel is a useful feature that comes in handy when you are using hashtag connections and other public networks.

In such a case, you might not get relevant or appropriate content every time.

Moderation gives you complete authority to filter your normal feeds as well as real-time feeds. You can always review and approve content before they go live.

When you select “Manually approve posts before making them public” before creating feed then all the feeds go into Moderation panel where you can approve all the feeds manually.

Watch Video or follow the guide below:

Enable and Disable Moderation

New Connection

If you are creating a New Connection, enter the input and then select the “Manually approve posts before making them public?” checkbox before clicking the “Create Feed” button.

Doing so will take all of your aggregated feeds into the Moderation Panel, where you can manually approve feeds according to your requirement.

On New Connection Enable

If you leave this option unselected then Moderation will be disabled for the connection. This means the new content will automatically be approved and will be live on website.

Existing Connection

If you have an existing connection and you want to enable or disable Moderation for it, then go to the “Social Feeds Panel” on the left-hand side of the screen. Select “Manage Feeds”.

If your connection shows “ON” Status then turn it “OFF” to Disable Moderation for future upcoming posts.
