What changes can I make to entries in my community?

As the community administrator, you can make certain changes to entries posted by a member of your community. These changes are:


Disabling Comments



Community administrators can disable comments to an entry in their community. (Entry authors can then override this setting and re-enable comments if they want.) To do this, click the Edit Entry link (Edit Entry) in the entry's action bar. Select the "Disable comments?" checkbox. Then, select the "Save Administrator Override" button to save your changes.


Adult Content Level



Community administrators can set a more restrictive adult content label for a community entry than the poster chose. To do this, click the Edit Entry link (Edit Entry) in the entry's action bar. Select the adult content level you would like the community to have. Then, select the "Save Administrator Override" button to save your changes.


Deleting Posts



To delete an entry that was made to your community, click the Edit Entry link (Edit Entry) in the entry's action bar. Select the "Delete Entry" button to delete the entry, or the "Delete and Mark as Spam" button if the entry is an unwanted solicitation and you want to report it to the site's antispam team. You will be prompted to confirm that you really want to delete the entry.


Upcoming Changes



Changes a community administrator can't make to a community entry yet include:

  • Changing the security level of the entry

  • Changing the comment settings of the entry (other than disabling comments)

  • Adding a cut tag


These options are planned for the future.
