The Moderation tool allows admins to approve, delete, edit, categorize and view user content from one screen. All submissions are located in the Moderation gallery.

  • By default, the system will show new images and videos waiting for approval.
  • Image Tags show relevant information about each thumbnail and include the Submission Source, Date, and Username. These tags can be turned off or on.
  • The Moderation gallery loads more thumbnails as you scroll to the bottom of the page.
