What’s New

Review in One Place

Let the review happened in the place. Now admins and moderators can review flagged content in Review, which is in the sidebar on the left.

Besides, we also provide filters to make the reviewing process efficient. With just a click, you can check the specific content waiting in queue.

Build Your Review Plugin from Today

We add an example review plugin to check user’s first post before it officially goes online. This ensures high-quality content in your community, while every user understands the posting rules.
