The plugin provides the following settings for the users to implement reporting/flagging BuddyPress activity updates on their websites:
Button text for submitting a report
The option helps in setting button text while flagging activity update which is set to ‘Flag’ by default. In the below screenshot, we can see the flag activity button in the activity actions row.
Button text for undo a report
The option helps in setting button text while unflagging activity update which is set to ‘Unflag’ by default. In the below screenshot, we can see the unflag activity button in the activity actions row.
Enable automatic moderation
With this option, the site admin enables/disables automatic moderation for flagged activity. This setting is complemented with an Automatic moderation limit. When automatic moderation is enabled, the flagged activity and update get hidden for reporters or all site members depending upon the hide mode setting.
Hide reported content for
Choose the option to hide reported content from the audience. Two options are given:
- Reporters: Activity will be hidden from the reporter only.
- All Members: Reported content will be hidden from all the site members.
Automatic moderation limit
This setting complements Enable automatic moderation. This setting accepts a numeric value. If automatic moderation is on and the number of reporters becomes greater than or equal to the automatic moderation limit for the flagged activity then that activity update gets hidden for reporters or all site members depending upon the hide mode setting. Default automatic moderation value is 5.
Hide reported content for
Hide mode settings provide two ways of hiding content. When the Reporters option is selected then the content is hidden only for reporters, while when the All members option is selected content is hidden for all site members. When hide mode is set from the plugin settings section, the model is assigned to newly flagged content. Apart from this admin can set hide mode individually for every flagged content. In the screenshot, we can see the Hide Mode settings under the related actions post meta section.
Enable Email notification
This setting enables email notification to the admin when any content is flagged.
Enable BuddyPress notification
This setting enables Buddypress notification to users whose content is flagged.
