How To Moderate news

In certain cases, you may want to moderate news coming from a certain website.  You may want to do this for any number of reasons, for example:

  • You are bringing news feeds that mention your company and you want to make sure that you approve each news story before publishing it to make sure it says positive things.
  • You have doubts about the quality of news from a certain website you may want to moderate them until you confirm it to be a good source.
  • You may have other reasons as well, the point is that you can moderate news as you wish.

ContentBreeze has the advantage that lets you moderate news feeds from any site you include. If you put a certain website into moderation, all news coming from that website will be “unapproved” until someone manually approves each one of them.

Only logged in admins can see moderated news that has not been approved.
