This module will send an email to defined moderators when a story is submitted to the site. The moderator must then approve the story before it will appear in the “New” section of the site. This is a great tool for keeping an eye on your site, since you will get an email alert whenever a new story has been submitted. It is also the only method guaranteed to prevent spam, because each story submitted needs to be approved by a moderator before it goes public.
The settings area for this module allows you to specify what email address should be contacted when a new submission is made. You can also define which user accounts ignore story moderation, so that trusted authors won’t have to wait for approval.
You can quickly change any submission’s status from the News Management page. Stories awaiting moderation approval will be labeled as “Moderated” under the status column.
