Posting a Reply

Topic Moderation

A Topic Moderators group and Topic Assignees group can be created in the Topics > Settings section.

Moderators have access to all topics and can edit and publish topics independently. They can also create topic classes.

Assignees can only edit and publish topics which are assigned to them. They can use the topic classes but cannot create new classes.

Here is an example of an assignee quick-editing a topic that is pending review:
