BuddyBlog Pro – override Submit Post for Review

    Hi Brajesh

    Would there possibly be a way of overriding the “Submit Post for Review” for certain roles and/or group owners (so that their posts don’t require approval and are published immediately)?


    1. Personal posts – currently I have users with “editor” status who use the (BuddyBlog) front end to add their posts, but then have to go to the dashboard to approve their OWN posts which is causing some confusion.

    2. Group posts – similar to the above, although in this case it can at least all be done in the front end, in this case, group owners have to approve their own posts before they are published (which seems like an unnecessary step).

    Any thoughts? The personal posts issue is the most significant for me currently…

    With many thanks in advance.

    Hello Nik,

    Please try the following code and let me know if it helps or not

    add_filter( 'bblpro_form_post_status', function ( $post_status, $form_id ) {
    	if ( is_super_admin() || ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
    		return $post_status;
    	$form_type = bblpro_get_form_type( $form_id, 'members' );
    	if ( 'members' == $form_type ) {
    		// Replace with your roles.
    		$skipped_roles = array( 'editor' );
    		if ( 'pending' == $post_status && bblpro_user_has_role_in( get_current_user_id(), $skipped_roles ) ) {
    			$post_status = 'publish';
    	return $post_status;
    }, 10, 2 );

    Hi Ravi

    Thank you so much for your quick and helpful reply.

    At least from tests so far, that seems to work perfectly.
