Looking for advice on how to properly setup post moderation feature.
Normally, post moderation of the posted topics is enabled for beginners only (up to 5 posts).

Occasionally, there is a need to put some annoying user on warning and moderate his/her posts.
How to do it, by only adding the users to an additional permission profile with moderation properties?
I've tried creating a group with properties similar to the novice user, then added the user to this group. But the user is able to post w/o moderation.

Appreciate your guidance.

Hmm kinda, that's one way to do it of course but there's also the warning system as you mentioned: https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Warning

You could issue a warning to a certain level and make it so all posts from warned users require approval. Plus on top of that you could configure it to decrease the warning level per day automatically and such from the administration page index.php?action=admin;area=securitysettings;sa=moderation; the feature works very well :)

It's so powerful that on this post and even in the two PMs you sent me,you still answered my question very quickly and you're apologizing for the delay. You're the #1 support I've probably ever encountered man, so much respect for that. Thank you, and get better soon.

I'll keep this in my siggy for a while just to remind me that someone appreciated what I did while others didn't.
