    How do I give a user permission to see the Who Read a Thread feature?

  • How to moderate the posts of new users only
    Wayne Luke
    To help combat spam, many users opt to have new user’s posts moderated until they’ve made a specific number of posts.

    In order to do this, you will need to create a custom usergroup and a promotion.
