Approve Blog Posts

Approve Blog Posts

By default, Community Central blogs are configured to use out-of-the-box SharePoint content approval. This allows community Moderators to review and approve new posts before they are published to the blog site. For details about configuring (or disabling) content approval options, see Configuring Content Approval.

When a blog post is saved as draft, its approval status is changed to Pending. Community Central Moderators can approve or reject posts.

NOTE: If you need to make changes to a post before approving it, edit the post. When you click Publish as a Moderator, the post is automatically approved and you can skip the steps below.

To change the approval status for a post, sign in as a Community Central Moderator.
