Lock Administrator Approval on all blogs? (6 posts)

    I am using Wordpress MU to create blogs for teachers and general school use. I wanted to set "An Administrator must always approve the comment" on all blogs by default and lock it that way to keep a teacher from accidentally changing that.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    You could check out a plugin like New Blog Defaults to do the default options.

    As far as locking it... You could write a plugin that takes that menu away from all users except the site admin. That's the simplest way to do it.

    I use the Menus plugin to hide menus from everyone but the SiteAdmin in my school.

    I tried to download the New Blog Defaults plugin, but all I get is a readme.txt file, no php plugin. Is there another that anyone know of that does this or does anyone have the plugin?

    It actually says on the "installation page" that you have to get it off of wpmudev. I stopped posting my code at wordpress.org because it took too long to get a project set up and it's impossible to find stuff over there. I'm really hoping that when they merge stuff, they redo the plugin repository to make it more user friendly.

    But, yes, dsader is right in that you'll have to combine it with the menus plugin to keep people from changing it back.
