Content Moderation & Workflows



Most Stacks features include Content Moderation. This feature leverages the permission levels set when assigning user roles to staff, including Administrators, Moderators, Editors, and Contributors. In general, each of these roles may create content, however, this content must be passed through the workflow by either an Administrator or Moderator. This ensures that content may be freely created while managing the quality, quantity, and timeliness of the content which appears on your Stacks site.


There are four Workflow states:

  1. Draft
  2. Needs review
  3. Reviewed
  4. Published

Any user can set the workflow of their own content to ‘Draft’ or ‘Needs review’; only Administrators and Moderators may advance the workflow through the ‘Reviewed’ and ‘Published’ states. Content will only appear to users once it’s Workflow has been set to Published. The workflow state should be set appropriately anytime content is created or edited.
